The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, and Formas are jointly announcing this call for research aimed at developing new knowledge to improve the conditions for implementing ecosystem-based management of aquatic ecosystems.

The knowledge needs have been grouped into three focus areas that can benefit from being combined:

  • A system perspective of ecosystem-based aquatic management
  • Practical management of the seal species and the great cormorant
  • Efficient, adaptive, and legitimate management

The primary target groups are the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Swedish EPA), the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM), and county administrative boards. The issues are also of great relevance to municipalities, the fishing industry, the tourism industry and anglers', hunters' and nature conservation organisations, politicians who shape Swedish and international fisheries policy and wildlife policy, and the public.
