SOCIOEC aims to develop management measures that will enable stakeholders to agree and comply with new and existing legislation

TITLE: Socio Economic effects of management measures of the future CFP
PROGRAMME: FP7, Cooperation, Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology (KBBE)
INSTRUMENT: Combination of Collaborative projects and Coordination and Support Actions (CP-CSA)
TOTAL BUDGET: €3,830,000
DURATION: March 2012 – February 2015
COORDINATOR: Johann Heinrich von Thünen – Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries, Germany
CONSORTIUM: 25 partners from 12 countries

The new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) will introduce reforms to the European fishing industry. It will implement a fisheries management system that will strive to bring the economic realities of the sector back in line with society’s long-term interest in healthy seas and thriving fish stocks. There is a need to translate EC requirements, consistent with the aims of the new CFP as well as the Marine Strategy Framework (MSFD) and other EU directives, so that they are understandable by the wider stakeholder community and engage their support.

SOCIOEC aims to perform a comprehensive analysis of the wide range of current and emerging management measures in the current CFP. It will develop possible new future measures to be introduced in order to achieve a more profitable and efficient fishing sector that provides sustainable employment, support society’s aims, and contributes to societal well-being.
