This project will provide a comprehensive study of the life history and structural dynamics of the sardine (Sardina pilchardus) in Atlantic European waters with an emphasis on the aspects required for improvement of the assessment and management of this species.
The study will lead to the modification / extension of existing assessment models or to the development of a new model based on biologically defensible definitions of the stock boundaries and a better understanding of the sardine dynamics within the stock area of distribution. A multi-disciplinary team will study the stock structure of sardine in the North-east Atlantic, describe the sardine dynamics in relation to the environment and integrate the results into models that can be used to enhance the quality of management advice.
The principal objective of this project is to improve the basis for management advice provided for sardine (Sardina pilchardus) in Atlantic European waters.
