Presented during the 2018 MedPAN experience sharing-workshop.
In collaboration with the French Biodiversity Agency (AFB), the Mnhn has developed a national method to determine the risk of professional fishing activities to not achieve the conservation objectives of Natura 2000 sites. This method was carried out in consultation with the AFB, the maritime fisheries and aquaculture directorate, and DEB. The method makes it possible to cross fishing grounds with the presence of habitats of Community interest and thus determine the level of risk. Depending on the level of risk, management measures will be developed in consultation with professional fishers.
