Abstract

Currently, scientific advice on sustainable limits of exploitation assumes that each species can be considered in isolation and that the underlying productivity remains constant. However, this is an over-simplification and does not protect against environmental change and the full range of fishing pressures. This project aimed to develop a modelling capability and data resources to indicate how management plans for North Sea fish species might be set in the context of a fisheries management plan for the ecosystem as a whole.
