Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) - Assessment and advice for non-quota stocks, to support the development of multi-annual strategies in the context EU-UK (STECF-22-04)

Commission Decision of 25 February 2016 setting up a Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries, C(2016) 1084, OJ C 74, 26.2.2016, p. 4–10. The Commission may consult the group on any matter relating to marine and fisheries biology, fishing gear technology, fisheries economics, fisheries governance, ecosystem effects of fisheries, aquaculture or similar disciplines.
The report provides a comprehensive overview on available fisheries management measures for the management of NQS. The management measures are divided in three main groups: input, output and governance/economic measures. The chapter also includes pros and cons of measures and includes background information on some more general management processes. One of such more process-oriented management approach is a co-management approach. Such an approach can be beneficial as, for example, Advisory Councils can also provide proposals for management measures. The process of implementation can sometimes have higher importance for the implementation and success of a measure than which actual measure would be implemented. A co-management approach, for example, may be preferable compared to a top-down approach.
