Guidance for Fisheries Management


Our research involves collection of biological, technical, and socio-economical data in order to provide recommendations about stock status and the management of Belgian and European fisheries.


Based on collection of data about the state of the fish stocks and the pattern of exploitation of the commercially important species, we give scientific advice to support the development and realisation of the European Common Fisheries Policy (CFP or GVB in Dutch).

ILVO inventories and monitors data pertaining to discards as part of our contribution to sustainable fisheries management.
