DG MARE Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (European Commission) - Project Dates:
February 2008 - July 2008

Description of Project:
The Commission intended to adopt in a Communication on an EU Plan of Action for the Conservation and Management of Sharks. The objective of this Plan of Action is to have a clear and holistic picture of what is already in place and what is still needed to do to ensure a comprehensive and coherent legislative package for the conservation and management of sharks inside and outside Community waters. The legislative work for the implementation of the Plan of Action will start once the Communication to the Council and the EP has been adopted by the Commission. An impact assessment needs to be carried out prior to submitting the Plan of Action to the College.

Services Provided:
Poseidon provided the team leader and a number of staff to conduct an impact evaluation of various possible measures to be included in the Plan of Action.
