The aim is to determine the optimal management of key fish species, taking into account economic (including profits by fleet) and ecological drivers and needs. A special focus will be on the effects of environmental variability and climate change on economic performance and indicators.

  • Task 4.1 Optimal economic-ecological management of selected key-species under environmental uncertainty
    • Sub-Task 4.1.2 Modelling of Ethmalosa fimbriata
    • Sub-Task 4.1.1 Modelling of Sardinella aurita
  • Task 4.2 Spatial economic-ecological approaches
  • Task 4.3 Ecosystem, economic, and fish based indicators of global change in West Africa
  • Companion project WP4b. Coastal erosion: monitoring, processes and impact on societies (Geomer, CAU, Legos, LDO, Lerg, CNSHB, IMROP, INDP, FD, CERESCOR)
