Reducing the conflict between cormorants and fisheries on a pan-European scale

Objective

OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
The overall objective of REDCAFE is to synthesize current Cormorant/fisheries information and to identify and evaluate methods of reducing the current Europe-wide conflict between conservationists and fisheries interests. It will apply a novel, biological/ modeling/socio-economic approach to this problem and, for the first time, bring together all the relevant European stakeholders to discuss and report on these issues in a rigorous, coordinated, and equitable manner.

A supplementary, though equally important, objective is to establish a framework for improved communication and information transfer between stakeholders (i.e. fisheries and conservation organisations, fisheries scientists, ornithologists/avian ecologists) and other interest groups within the EU.

REDCAFE has five Work Packages with overall objectives of synthesizing available information on Cormorant conflicts with fisheries, incorporating best estimates of associated financial losses (WP1).
