  DEEPFISHMAN – Working towards sustainable deep-water fisheries

Photo of article Deep-water fisheries have in the past faced particular difficulty as regards monitoring and management. Assessments of target species, such as the roundnose grenadier, are challenging due to difficulties in estimating age and the standardisation of catch per unit effort (CPEU) - a measure of the abundance of a target species. In addition, these species are often vulnerable to overfishing and sustainable levels of exploitation are low. And vulnerable marine ecosystems (VMEs) such as corals and sponges are also often damaged by fishing tools. The European Union (EU)-funded Deepfishman project aimed at finding sustainable management options to improve conditions of these deep-water fisheries in the North East Atlantic.
