IBEFish has two objectives:

  1. to share the results and theoretical understandings gained in past projects with regard to the ecosystem approach in fisheries management, with a special focus on the role of participation in integrated management of the interaction between environment and fisheries; and
  2. to make practical recommendations for improving fisheries management towards an ecosystem-based approach especially emphasizing the need for an enhanced knowledge-base, legitimacy and trust-building in the management.
