Coordination of European Marine Fisheries Research Programmes

Strengthening the links between European marine fisheries science and fisheries management.
It aims to improve collaboration between the funders of marine fisheries research by providing opportunities for fisheries managers to work together in a partnership: to improve the coordination, planning and funding of research, and to make the most of ICES expertise

MariFish activities include exchanging information on current national research and development programmes being run by the partners; finding ways to improve research planning and procurement by pooling knowledge; and identifying areas of existing collaboration at regional, European and international level. The project also aims to compare and analyse national research programmes to identify areas of common interest, gaps in research and areas of duplication. This will help the partners develop and commission shared research activities in up to five pilot areas.

The long-term aim is to identify the strategic and innovative requirements of fisheries research over the next ten years, before developing jointly funded programmes to meet those needs. Three projects have already been identified and will be funded:

  • BADMINTON: Bycatch and discards: management indicators, trends and location,
  • REPRODUCE: Understanding recruitment processes using coupled biophysical models of the pelagic ecosystem,
  • DEFINEIT: Fisheries Management Indicators and targets: to give the tools needed to estimate MSY while taking ecosystem and socio-economic effects into account.
