One fifth of EU catches originate from non-EU waters. These fisheries are often poorly regulated, management decisions are sometimes based on limited knowledge and enforcement capabilities, compliance and trust between stakeholders tend to lack.
|Time:||1. June 2017 – 31. May 2021|
|Financed by:||Horizon 2020 - The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation|
|In cooperation with:||21 participants both in and outside of Europe. Coordinated by Matis (Iceland)|
FarFish will address this shortcoming by providing knowledge, tools and methods to support responsible, sustainable and profitable EU fisheries outside European waters, compatible with Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY).
FarFish will develop practical, achievable and cost-effective fisheries management tools and advice which can be applied immediately. The work will be done in collaboration of scientists, policy makers, resource users and other stakeholders aimed to improve fisheries management competences.
FarFish will provide a better knowledge base of these fisheries and encourage resource users to actively take part in the management, thus empowering them, generating a sense of ownership and enhancing compliance.
