Costing the impact of demersal fishing on marine ecosystem processes and biodiversity
- COST-IMPACT

A project funded under the European Union Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources programme

Key Action 5.1.2 Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture - Interactions between Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture

Contract number Q5RS-2001-00993

The European Union currently faces potentially conflicting objectives of maintaining sustainable fisheries in European waters with all the economic benefits afforded to the community through the fishing industry, whilst at the same time maintaining biodiversity and avoiding negative effects on the environment.

To date the economic arguments controlling fishing effort have focused on costs of fishing per unit catch and maintenance of sustainable fish stocks for the future.

The current objectives of the EU are to control the environmental impact of fishing and to strike a balance between economic needs and protection of the environment.
