Research infrastructure for wild fish stocks

The research infrastructure for wild fish stocks provides a wide range of resources to support research on wild fish stocks. Research topics include among others migratory fishes. In addition, the research infrastructure is used to collect both biological and socio-economic data for the EU Data Collection Framework (DCF) in the fishery sector.
