MAREFRAME Co-creating Ecosystem-based Fisheries Management Solutions

Project Implementation Period: 
January 2014 - December 2017
Specific Funding Programme: 

FP7 (EU 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development)
KBBE.2013.1.2-08: Innovative insights and tools to integrate the ecosystem-based approach into fisheries advice

 

Budget: 

€ 7,970,856 with requested EC contributions of € 6,000,000 (75.3%) over four years

About the Project: 

MareFrame is a EC-funded RTD project which seeks to remove the barriers preventing more widespread use of the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management. This entails development of new tools and technologies, development and extension of ecosystem models and assessment methods, and development of a decision support framework that can highlight alternatives and consequences. Most importantly the removal of barriers depends not only on collaboration with stakeholders in general, but on close integration and co-creation with stakeholders in all development phases, to ensure that ownership lies with them and to increase the chance of acceptance and uptake of the project outcomes.The vision of MareFrame is to significantly increase the use of ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management (EAFM) when providing advice relating to European fish stocks.

The overall objective of MareFrame is to remove the barriers preventing more widespread use of EAFM through development of new tools and technologies, development and extension of ecosystem models and assessment methods, and development of a decision support framework that can highlight alternatives and consequences; all in close collaboration with the stakeholders in the co-creation processes.
