In this paper, I discuss the methodological, organisational and practical issues related to current challenges of Common Fisheries Policy. The improvement of socio-economic advice and the adapting of Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management are the main elements of this paper. I use the subjective experiences obtained in being involved to advisory and other scientific processes.
From methodological point of view, the strong empirical attitude of biologists is dominating in fisheries advice. Economic sciences have partly failed in developing practical economic advice. Some of these difficulties seem to be related to the different traditions of the disciplines. One aspect here is the interest of economic tradition for normative advice and certain mathematical techniques, leading to models that biologists consider to be too simple from biological point of view. At least in some branches of sociological research, the scientific traditions seem to be somewhat more close to those of biology.
From organisational and practical point of view, the main problem of the socio-economic advice has been that there is no similar organization as ICES is for biologist. ICES advisory system is well adapted to the EU decision making time schedules and practises. The current system does not provide enough time or resources to socio-economic analysis, even though this is requested in CFP legislation and would improve the capacity of fisheries management to find acceptable solutions. ICES experience in operational fisheries advice should be used to support inclusion of socio-economic elements.
Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management creates new methodological challenges for fisheries advice which currently relies mostly on stock specific data. We need methodology that enables risk assessment also for poorly studied by-catch species having much less data. The information may be based on the more effective use of data bases, published papers or systematic analysis of expert knowledge.
