The Institute of Sea Fisheries provides the scientific basis and evaluates the economic conditions to guide the sustainable use of natural marine resources. This institute prepares decision support for the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) with respect to the Common Fisheries Policy of the EU (CFP) and international marine conventions (i.a. NEAFC, NAFO, CCAMLR, OSPAR, IWC, ASCOBANS) of which Germany is a member. Through its scientific monitoring programs and research activities, the institute contributes to a general increase in knowledge about marine systems for the benefit of the international community.

Based on its research, the institute enunciates advice to the Federal Ministry (Departments 621 and 622) and the European Commission (STECF, other EU advisory boards). The institute?s scientific outcome also forms an important part of the German contribution to the annual advice for fisheries and marine ecosystems provided in collaboration with other European fisheries research institutions (ERA-NET) under the auspices of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES). The institute takes part in international research projects funded by EU and other agencies in order to evaluate and resolve specific questions regarding the management of marine living resources and to further improve the scientific basis of its advice.

Fields of research:

  • Research on the development of commercially valuable stocks of fishes and invertebrates and monitoring of fish assemblages in the European Seas, in the North Atlantic and in the Antarctic Ocean
  • Fisheries economy
  • Effects of different users inside the German EEZ on marine resources and on fisheries
  • Management models, fisheries oceanography, climate change
  • Hydro-acoustics
