Final Report of the Working Group on Comparative Analyses between European Atlantic and Mediterranean marine ecosystems to move towards an Ecosystem-based Approach to Fisheries (WGCOMEDA)
The Working group on comparative analyses between European Atlantic and Mediterranean Ecosystems to move towards an Ecosystem-based Approach to Fisheries (WGCOMEDA) has been consolidated as an active and collaborative platform of research with participation of scientists from the Atlantic and Mediterranean regions working at different ecological levels from population, through community to ecosystem level. The group was established in 2014 and works in cooperation with other groups within the SCICOM/ACOM Steering Group on Integrated Ecosystem Assessments (SSGIEA), such as the ICES/HELCOM Working Group on Integrated Assessments of the Baltic Sea (WGIAB) and the ICES Working Group on Ecosystem Assessment of Western European Shelf Seas (WGEAWESS). The group (chaired by Marta Coll, France, Hilmar Hinz and Manuel Hidalgo, Spain) met for the third time in Bilbao, Spain, from 4 to 6 May 2016, with 18 scientists from European Atlantic and Mediterranean countries that attended the meeting (Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Norway, Spain, and Portugal).
