SARDINHA2020: An ecosystem approach to sardine fisheries management

Sardinha2020 aims at contributing to further integrate economics into fishery policy advice.

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.

Karl Marx once said that, until now, philosophers limited themselves to interpret the world; however, the goal is to change it. And change is necessary – human beings reached the current state of evolution due to their capacity to adapt and overcome. This article explores climate change, all its associated consequences and potential solutions. Now, it’s our job to act rather than to react.

Great success for whom?
