Fisheries monitoring via the use of Fisheries Log Books and Geographical Information Systems

Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) reform can nowadays be greatly assisted by electronic, computer-based aides that record in detail a boat’s location and its fishing activity. This means that compliance with quotas can be accurately recorded and logged and this information can, in turn, be used to manage fish stocks and their related quotas with a great deal of accuracy and finesse. These electronic aides — Fisheries Electronic Log Books and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) — are therefore key tools in CFP reform, and this report (pdf file) explains the nature and usefulness of these new tools.
