The Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is inter alia oriented towards promoting the establishment of biologically sensitive protected areas, including nursery and spawning grounds of exploited stocks.

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– To model and test the bio-economic effects on fisheries of area-based management measures
– To help in identifying, over varying geographic spatial scales, likely coherent networks of already existing and new protected areas which support area-based management for fisheries whilst enhancing cooperation amongst stakeholders and Member States’ in the regionalised implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy

Priorities
– Providing critical analyses of the bio-ecological, fisheries, technical, legal, economic and organizational matters at stake for an effective interplay between nature conservation and sustainable exploitation of the marine resources in line with the maximum sustainable yield objectives
– Identifying possible technical/governance solutions to establishing adequate networks of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in support of the maximum sustainable yield (MSY) objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP)
– Developing a participatory conservation which supports bottom-up approaches to fisheries conservation and management

Among financed actions
– Component 1: Data gathering and modelling of the area-based management effects for the enhancement of fisheries towards MSY objectives
– Component 2: Lessons learnt and conclusions
– Component 3: Management and coordination of the project
– Component 4: Communication, dissemination and durability of the project’s result
