Implementation of an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management


On 24th June, the EFFOP secretariat participated in the Fisheries Science Seminar on 24 June 2022 organized by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE). The focus of the seminar (webinar) was on “Implementation of an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM)”.

In the current context of rapid climate and ocean changes, but also of increasing awareness about a wide range of various human impacts on ecosystems, there are growing needs to further take into account ecosystems considerations when managing fisheries. The science seminar provided an opportunity to take stock of the most recent developments in implementing an EAFM, and to identify potential areas requiring further actions, as well as the corresponding needs in terms of the scientific advice required for the policy makers.
