The Wageningen UR programme WOT-05 Fisheries Research carries out statutory tasks which are related to Dutch and international legislation in fisheries management and aquaculture. The present programme started in 2002 and has been evaluated in 2010. In that year a new agreement has been established between the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation (EZ) and DLO to extend the programme to the period 2011-2015 with some modifications. The main product of the programme is the provision of advice on fishery management and resource conservation to the Ministry, in particular the Directorate of Agriculture, Fisheries and Agribusiness (EZ-DAD). Many of the projects in this programme deal with extensive data collection, which forms the basis for the advice. These projects include the compulsory collection of biological data required by the DCF3. The programme is carried out by the Institute for Marine Resources and Ecosystem Studies (IMARES) and the Centre for Fisheries Research (CVO) both in IJmuiden (The Netherlands).
