Final Report - UNCOVER (Understanding the mechanisms of stock recovery)

Project ID: 22717
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES


The UNCOVER project aimed to identify parameters that influence fish stocks and fisheries so as to develop recommendations for long-term management plans and recovery plans, in order to facilitate the application of a sustainable fisheries management approach. The project was funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme.

This final activity report summarises UNCOVER major objectives. It also presents the applied methodologies and provides an overview of the performed analyses regarding fish stocks recovery. In addition, the document refers to the constraints that are imposed on recovery strategies and on the attempts to quantify and reduce system uncertainties. The case studies which were examined and the relevant outcomes are subsequently analysed. Moreover, the report revises the requirements for successful implementation of recovery plans and closes with an executive summary of UNCOVER outcomes.
