Description

The aim of this brochure is to provide an overview of the work performed by the EFICA consortium between 2018 and 2023, in support of the EU’s contribution to the Joint Program of Scientific Research and Monitoring in the Central Arctic Ocean.

The consortium carried out a total of six projects, funded under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF). Each of the projects covered different steps – from identifying the research needs and data gaps, to analysing the outcomes of two scientific expeditions in the Central Arctic Ocean.

The projects provided groundbreaking scientific insights into the state of the extremely vulnerable marine ecosystems in the Central Arctic Ocean. The results of the Arctic expeditions indicate that future sustainable commercial fisheries do not seem feasible in the Central Arctic Ocean.

The publication is targeted at fisheries scientists, policymakers and all stakeholders with an interest in Arctic policy and international governance.
