MareFrame aimed to significantly increase the use of the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management (EAFM), particularly when providing advice relating to the management of European fish stocks. MareFrame was an FP7 framework project with over 20 partners involved in its delivery. NSAC was a project partner.
The project enabled the development of new tools and technologies; the extension of ecosystem models and assessment methods, and the development of a decision support framework to highlight alternatives and consequences. All project outputs were generated in close collaboration with key stakeholders.
