Strengthening regional cooperation in the area of fisheries data collection MARE/2014/19 Closed!


Reliable and complete data are central to the well-functioning of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). For this reason, an EU framework for the collection and management of fisheries data was established in 2000, and then reformed in 2008 resulting in the Data Collection Framework (DCF).


The main aim of the DCF is to ensure that scientific data are available to end users to support scientific analysis as a basis for fisheries management. Concretely, one of the main ways in which the DCF contributes to fisheries management is by providing the data for stock assessments, which are carried out by organizations such as the International Council for Exploration of the Seas (ICES) for stocks in the North Atlantic and the the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) as well as the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) for stocks in the Mediterranean and Black Sea.
