The 2006 conference-debate to the Oceanographic Institute of Paris

  Defining research priorities in support to the Ecosystem Approach    to Fisheries management  

The context

While the principles of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries management (EAF) are by now well established, and its first applications largely underway, only limited attention has been devoted to the implications of EAF for future research in support of the sustainable harvesting of goods and services from marine ecosystems.

In order to address this issue, a prospective analysis of future research needs in support of EAF was carried out by Ifremer. The aim of the analysis was to identify possible evolutions in the environmental, economic and institutional context in which marine fisheries develop, and to identify associated key research areas.
