DOCUMENT TEXT

Short description  The reliability of scientific advice for fishery management is highly
dependent on the quantity and quality of data that are available for
scientific assessment and interpretation. New fisheries, such as
the deep-water ones west of Europe are data poor, as are many
multi-national, multi-species fisheries in, for example, the Mediterranean or
northern Baltic. This requires further work to build on earlier EU-funded
projects, such as EFIMIAS and COMMIT, to improve the quality of scientific advice
relating to data-poor fisheries.POORFISH will undertake a variety of case studies
exemplifying data-poor fisheries around Europe, plus two off the coast of west Africa.
Abstract (focusing on the key recommendations)  POORFISH will undertake a variety of case studies
exemplifying data-poor fisheries around Europe, plus two off
the coast of west Africa. It will gather information for
utilisation within a probabilistic assessment, management
and advice model (PAMAM). This model enables
management and assessment uncertainties to be evaluated.
Specific objectives are:
to review the potential assessment and m ...
