Centre for the Economics and Management of Aquatic Resources

The Centre for the Economics and Management of Aquatic Resources (CEMARE) is a centre of research within the Department of Economics at the University of Portsmouth. Since it was founded at the beginning of the 1960s, CEMARE has developed strong capabilities in research, consultancy and training in the fields of fisheries economics, the management of commercial and recreational fishing, aquaculture, the management of coastal areas and the governance of oceans. CEMARE offers a number of facilities, among them a library containing over 35 000 references in the form of scientific journals, books and various resumes. CEMARE is currently involved in a number of major international and European projects looking at the Common Fisheries Policy and co-operation with ACP countries. One can name in this regard, the recent programme of sustainable development of continental African fisheries of Lake Chad (INCO IC18-CT98-9331), the one on sustainable management of cephalopod fisheries in West Africa (INCO IC18-CT96-0064) and the current INCO-DEV projects entitled: Coherence of conservation and development policies of coastal and marine protected areas in West Africa (CONSDEV); Fisheries Governance and Food Security (FISHGOVFOOD); Policy Research for Sustainable Shrimp Farming in Asia (PORESSFA). CEMARE is also involved in research programmes funded by the Department for International Development (Dfid) for example the Sustainable Fishery Livelihood programme (SFLP) and the policy research programme on the European Union fishing agreement with third countries: commitment to the principle of Responsibility.
