Main content


I will overview my project, eSEAS: Enhancing Seafood Ethics and Sustainability, which explores new ways of securing seafood sustainability by embedding values and ethics in the management framework. eSEAS has three objectives: 1. to promote interdisciplinary research in seafood ethics; 2. to develop decision-support tools to enhance seafood ethics and sustainability; and 3. to implement ethical approaches to European management challenges. I will present two ethical deliberation and decision-support tools that illustrate how explicit considerations of values and ethics in decision-making can enhance resource sustainability and governance.
