There is a need to significantly increase the use of ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management (EAFM). This is where the MareFrame project comes into play.
The vision of MareFrame is to significantly increase the use of ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management (EAFM) when providing advice relating to European fish stocks. To better understand the purpose of the project, please take a look at the MareFrame video.
The objective of MareFrame is to remove the barriers preventing more widespread use of EAFM through development of new tools and technologies, development and extension of ecosystem models and assessment methods, and development of a decision support framework that can highlight alternatives and consequences; all in close collaboration with the stakeholders in the co-creation processes.
