Towards responsible and sustainable fisheries

A billion people dependent on fish in the world  |  From years of  “miraculous fishing” to stock collapse  |  An unlikely return to initial state  |  Impacts
of fisheries on the marine ecosystem as a whole
  |  A worrisome reduction
in fish size

responsible and sustainable fisheries

The Centre de Recherche Halieutique Méditerranéenne et Tropicale ( Mediterranean and Tropical Halieutic Research Center)

Created in 2001, the Centre de Recherche Halieutique Méditerranéenne et Tropicale (CRHMT) in Sète is a joint research structure partnered by  Ifremer, IRD and the University of Montpellier II. Specialized in tropical and Mediterranean marine milieux and their halieutic resources, the CRHMT develops multidisciplinary integrated research for an ecosystem approach to fisheries, within the context of global climatic change and overexploitation. Research themes and areas of competency include marine ecology, coupled physical/biogeochemical/halieutic resource models, trophic interactions, the dynamics of exploited populations and fisheries, stock evaluation, fisheries technologies, information systems, indicators and stable isotopes. A pilot project of the CRHMT, the Ecoscope is a knowledge center on exploited marine ecosystems. Its mission is to capitalize, articulate and disseminate the knowledge obtained in diverse past, present and future research programs on tropical and Mediterranean ecosystems. In this way, access is given to data, tools, methods and know-how concerning each ecosystem in order to answer questions raised by the ecosystem approach to fisheries. The Ecoscope is not only destined for researchers and CRHMT partners, but for the dissemination of information to the profession and young people.
