The XXIII Conference of the European Association of Fisheries Economists (EAFE) will be held at Dublin Castle from the 25th to 27th April 2017. Hosted by the Fisheries Economics Group of Bord Iascaigh Mhara, the Irish Sea Fisheries Board, the conference is intended to provide a forum for the dissemination of recent advances in capture fisheries and aquaculture economics and management to promote discussion amongst researchers, managers, policy makers and other stakeholders in the fisheries sector.
The conference intends to assess the socio-economic impact of the initial introduction of management measures from the most recent Common Fishery Policy (CFP) in order to find examples of best-practice in adapting to global challenges and the new institutional setting within EU fisheries. The conference will contain a number of special sessions focussing on ‘the bioeconomics of gear selectivity adaptation and the Landing Obligation’, ‘the effectiveness of the EMFF’, ‘the valuation of European small-scale fisheries’, ‘the need for integrated advice and transdisciplinarity’ and ‘progress on the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation’. Abstracts are invited from all interested parties in Europe and further afield for all special sessions and general themes.
We invite abstracts for papers on the following special sessions:
- The bioeconomics of gear selectivity adaptation and the Landing Obligation
- Effectiveness of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF); the role of subsidies and payments for ecosystem services to incorporate non-market values of fishing and aquaculture
- European small-scale fisheries: valuation and interaction of recreational and commercial fisheries
- The need for integrated advice and transdisciplinarity in fisheries management: bioeconomic models, mental models and narratives working together
- The Galway agreement: opportunities to learn from the different perception of fish products in the EU, USA and Canada
