The identification and spatiotemporal mapping of Essential Fish Habitats (EFHs) represent the fundamental scientific tasks of the spatial component of fisheries management, a component that has often been neglected in previously enforced fisheries policies.

EFH-GIS deals with the mapping of EFH in the Mediterranean through a GIS database update, map ocean processes, habitat modeling, MPA designation, and knowledge dissemination. {Marie Curie-FP7-PEOPLE-IEF-2008-235791}
