MAREFRAME is an FP7 framework project with over 20 partners involved in its delivery. NSAC is project partner.
The main objective of MareFrame is to significantly increase the use of the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management (EAFM) when providing advice relating to the management of European fish stocks. This will be achieved through the development of new tools and technologies; the development and extension of ecosystem models and assessment methods; and the development of a decision support framework that can highlight alternatives and consequences; all in close collaboration with key stakeholders in the co-creation processes.

The North Sea Advisory Council are stakeholders in a number of scientific projects including Discardless, Mareframe and MYFISH. The members of the NSAC are positive about ongoing involvement and participation in science projects as it is a key aim of the organisation to increase links with scientists in order to improve understanding and communication between the fishing industry and the scientific community.
NSAC welcomes approaches to become involved in the development of projects as stakeholders with input to the planning and scoping of project proposals. NSAC members are less likely to approve involvement in projects that have already been approved and are seeking AC representation in order to gain project approval.
If you are seeking project partners and you are beginning to scope your project please contact the NSAC secretariat to discuss your project and possible links to NSAC.

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.

EcoFishMan is a European Funded Project with 14 regional partners.
EcoFishMan is a project that aims to develop and contribute to the implementation of a new integrated fisheries management system in Europe based on increased stakeholder involvement: An ecosystem-based sustainable management system under a precautionary framework that will define maximum acceptable negative impact, target elimination of discards, and maintain economic and social viability.
NSAC is a stakeholder in the project and participates by attending meetings and seminars. Mike Park has represented NSAC at recent EcoFishMan meetings.
