UNderstanding the Mechanisms of Stock ReCOVERy

Status: Completed (February 2010)
Coordinator: Institute for Baltic Sea Fisheries Rostock

​​​​​​​The purpose of UNCOVER was to develop recovery strategies for EU fish stocks that were outside safe biological limits. The principle objectives were to:

  • Identify changes occurring during stock decline and their consequences for the prospects of stock recovery
  • Enhance the understanding of environmental and biological mechanisms of fish stock recovery

To fulfil these objectives, UNCOVER took​​​​​ a multidisciplinary approach to:

  • Synthesise and integrate relevant information from previous and ongoing research programmes
  • Evaluate and develop strategies that incorporate biological and environmental factors, as well as technical and socio-economic constraints​
