Fishing quotas are a matter of much debate, but there is no arguing that marine resources must be managed wisely. The EU’s common fisheries policy (CFP) is a science-based policy, with decisions based on scientific advice to ensure the health of our seas and the future of fisheries.
To make the right decisions, policy-makers need relevant, accurate and up-to-date data. Research vessels collect data, helping to ensure that EU fisheries remain sustainable.
In this episode of OCEAN, we join scientists onboard a research vessel the Celtic Explorer performing the Irish Groundfish Survey, showing how fish is sampled and measured as part of the EU Data Collection Framework. We follow the data as it becomes scientific basis for fishery advice at the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) in Copenhagen, and conclude with the fishing industry point of view at the fishing auction in Thyborøn, Denmark.
