Well-functioning marine ecosystems and their biodiversity are vitally important for human well-being - they provide the wide range of ecosystem services on which we depend. The impact of fishing on marine ecosystems not only concerns the commercially important fish stocks sustaining commercial fisheries per se, but can also affect the benthic invertebrate and fish communities, marine mammals, seabirds and the seafloor. Different types of fishing gear have different types of impacts on the marine ecosystems and their ecological services. Marine Protected Areas can be effective tools to ensure the protection of marine ecosystems and the sustainable use of their natural resources. The main objective of the BALTFIMPA project is to assist, on a regional level, the HELCOM Contracting States to comply with their obligations to fulfil conservation objectives of marine protected areas in the Baltic Sea. BALTFIMPA shall thus analyse possible conflicts between fisheries and conservation objectives in MPAs (including Baltic Sea Protected Areas and areas of NATURA 2000), taking into account the protected species, and it will identify fisheries management measures accordingly. This will be accomplished by studying the impact of fisheries and then finding new solutions to mitigate it. Solutions can range from improved management of fisheries regulations to development of new types of fishing gear that are more sustainable for the environment. These solutions need then to be promoted and disseminated to all relevant stakeholders. The central question guiding the project is "how can fisheries management contribute to achieving conservation objectives of marine protected areas?".
