Capacity, F and Effort.

Capacity reduction and effort limitation are major tools in fisheries management. CFP reform aims to match European fleet capacity to resource availability. Links are assumed between these and fishing mortality, but the scientific basis for these has not been fully established, particularly for pelagic fisheries. The project will examine the relationship between these factors for six case studies.
