CEVIS assesses potential innovations for European fisheries management regimes in respect to four general management objectives: biological robustness; economic efficiency; the cost effectiveness of management activities; and social robustness. CEVIS examines four types of regime-level innovations: the use of participatory approaches to fisheries governance; rights-based regimes; effort-control regimes and decision-rule systems. The central research objectives of CEVIS are expressed by four disciplinary, cross-case work packages that focus on the implications of these types of innovations for the general management objectives in four case studies in the EU and the Faroe Islands. Before these case studies begin the research will take a close look at cases of innovative fisheries management in other developed countries. Visits will be made to four places outside the EU that have similar fisheries and have implemented these four types of innovations. CEVIS has two final products. The first is an Innovation Evaluation Framework made up of indicators of inputs and outcomes in relation to the four general management objectives. This will be an aid to fisheries managers wishing to assess the suitability of possible changes in EU fisheries management practice. The second is a report based on the case studies that evaluates this specific set of potential regime-level innovations for use in EU fisheries management.
