SARDINHA2020: An ecosystem approach to sardine fisheries management

This project combines the efforts of a large group of scientists with the final aim of delivering a Management Plan for the Portuguese purse-seiner fishery. The main task to be developed by Nova SBE Environmental Economics Knowledge Center is to develop a bioeconomic model for this fleet. By doing this project aims at contributing to integrate economics into fishery policy advice further. In particular, the bioeconomic model will be used to derive harvest control rules that endogenously capture economic aspects while using a population model framework based on most fish stock assessments and fishery management plans. Building upon the project's results, the bioeconomic model will be extended to account for interactions between species and environmental impacts on targeted fish populations. By doing so, we also aim to contribute to fostering the use of an ecosystem approach tofisheries management.

Pioneering recycling: deposit return on campus and across Portugal

Demand for single-use cans and bottles is growing each year, but many of these containers end up in our oceans, streets, and landfills. Deposit return systems seek to combat this waste by offering a financial incentive for consumers to return their empty beverage containers for recycling. As Portugal gets ready to launch national deposit return legislation, Nova SBE is pioneering its own container deposit program.
