INDECO: Utility and uses of socio-economic indicators on the environmental impact of fishing activities - case study: The Danish pelagic fisheries in the North Sea 

This Deliverable under the WP6 presents two case studies to evaluate the utility and future possibilities for the use of socio-economic indicators in order to assess the CFP environmental performance. One case study (D14a) is the French Gulf of Lions trawl fishery in the Mediterranean Sea and the second case study (D14b) the Danish pelagic fisheries in the North Sea. The two case studies have been selected to provide insights into the availability of relevant socio-economic indicators and the utility of such information for fisheries management in two very different EU fisheries settings.
