IFM Research Areas

The basis for IFM’s work is the reciprocal relationship where advisory needs both guide and are informed by research and capacity building activities.

IFM’s current research interests focus on:

  • Ecosystem-based approaches to marine management
  • Stakeholder participation in fisheries/marine management
  • Regionalisation of the Common Fisheries Policy
  • The knowledge base for fisheries/marine management
  • Social impact assessments related to fisheries/marine management
  • Regional and local development in coastal areas.
