SOCIOEC analysing strategic management measures for fisheries

The SOCIOEC project held a meeting from 6-7 March 2014 in Rome, Italy. SOCIOEC is working on solutions for future fisheries management that can be implemented at a regional level. The aim of this meeting was to define how the social and economic effects and impact on commercial fish stock of the management measures identified within the project will be evaluated.

The SOCIOEC project has analysed several fisheries in six different case study areas: the Baltic Sea case study has focused on the small scale fisheries in Natura 2000 sites; the North Sea case study focuses on flatfish, nephrops and cod fisheries; the Pelagic case study focuses on European Pelagic Fisheries and the migration of stock in relation to the relative stability key and negotiations within EU countries as well as non-EU countries based on different migration scenarios; the western waters case study focuses on different fisheries in the Bay of Biscay, the English Channel, and ICES sub areas VI and VII; the Mediterranean case study focuses on the Black Sea Turkish anchovy fisheries, the Aegean trawl fishery, the demersal Tyrrhenian fishery and the Italian clam fishery in the Adriatic Sea; and finally, the Non-EU case study focuses on Icelandic fisheries.
