MYFISH

MYFISH is a European funded project. MYFISH aims at integrating the MSY concept with the overarching principals of the CFP: the precautionary and the ecosystem approach. MYFISH will achieve this objective through addressing fisheries in all RAC areas and integrating stakeholders (the fishing industry, NGOs and managers) throughout the project. Existing ecosystem and fisheries models will be modified to perform maximization of stakeholder approved yield measures while ensuring acceptable impact levels on ecosystem, economic and social aspects.

NSAC is a MYFISH stakeholder and participates in meeting and seminars. NSAC has been represented at recent MYFISH meetings by Barrie Deas and Mike Park.
