Contract nr: QLK5-CT-1999-01271
Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-01-2000
Duration: 24 months
Total cost: 948,858 EUR

Scientific Officer: Dominique LEVIEIL
Research topic: 5.4. Support for common policies (Common Agricultural/Fisheries Policy)

Abstract:
Exclusion zones have a long history in Europe. However, the analysis of their potential and value for fisheries management is lacking, as is management advice. This project aims to: evaluate the ecological and socio-economic value of exclusion zones as tools of fisheries management and develop robust multi-disciplinary analytical framework(s) and model(s) for use in the evaluation and development of exclusion zones (utilising secondary data and findings research to date). The modelling framework will be multi-disciplinary (bio-ecological, socio-economic & institutional), with a space-structured, multi-species, multi-fleet, inter-temporal bio-economic model at its core. Also, by building on work on the empirical evaluation of expected returns from research and testing the sensibility of value and the model(s) developed to data uncertainty, future research needs to optimise the returns to fisheries management will be targeted.
