Reducing the conflict between cormorants and fisheries on a pan-european scale

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-1999-31387
Project type: CA (Concerted Action)
Starting date: 01-10-2000
Duration: 24 months
Total cost: 400,000 EUR
EC Contribution: 395,326 EUR
Scientific Officer: Dominique LEVIEIL
Research topic: 5.1.2. Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture

Abstract:
The purpose of REDCAFE is to synthesise current cormorant/fisheries information and to identify and evaluate methods of reducing the current Europe-wide conflict between conservationists, and fisheries' interests. It will bring together, for the first time, stakeholders (commercial/recreational fisheries and bird conservation organisations, fisheries scientists, avian ecologists) to discuss and report these issues in a rigorous, co-ordinated and equitable manner. Available information on Cormorant conflicts with fisheries (with best estimates of financial losses) and on those aspects of Cormorant ecology leading to such conflicts, will be synthesised. Potential management tools will be identified and evaluated (including efficacy and cost-effectiveness) and a Multiple Criteria Decision Model will be developed and applied to a specific conflict case study. Full information will be disseminated at the local, national and European level.
