CFP embodies multiple objectives (biological, economic and social)
in its aims for the management of fisheries in EU waters. However,
there has been significant criticism of the CFP concerning its
effectiveness to these aims. The main reason for this is that
important sectors of the industry feel that their best interests
are not being taken account of when management policy is being
defined. This project analyses the objective structure throughout
EU fisheries, from the perspectives of all key players: managers,
politicians, fishers, researchers and other interest groups. Objectives
preferences and opinions from these groups are to be elicited.
Multi-objective models will be developed and analysed to consider
existing and future management soals for several case studies;
English channel, North Sea and Spanish fisheries. The project
is multi-disciplinary drawing on expertise from economics, mathematics,
computer science and fisheries.
Develop a multi-objective framework for analysis of fisheries
management in line with the aims of the CFP.
- Define the objectives and criteria intrinsic to the fisheries
management process and CFP, as well as other attributes and goals.
- Elicit preferences of the different interest groups with significant
interests in the EU fisheries management process.
- Develop several case studies of EU fisheries (North Sea, English
Channel and Spanish fisheries) to model the defined objectives
and attributes using the elicited preferences.
- Analyse the results and trade-offs between the multi-objectives
for all case studies to investigate the main question of how an
optimally managed fishery would look from the perspectives of
the groups individually, by country and EU-wide.
