Shared knowledge on fleets, gears-species and areas of operation, is essential to engage in a platform of exchange on low-impact offshore fishing techniques between fishers and stakeholders from different outermost regions. Information on small scale fisheries in Europe and especially in OR is often heterogeneous and dispersed. That is why it is fundamental to develop a systematic description – status and evolution - of small-scale fisheries in ORs to identify similarities and contrasts between the different ORs, especially in the perspective of fisheries management and more generally best practices. The general objective of the task 2.1.1 was to share knowledge about the status and evolution of small-scale fisheries in ORs according to a common methodology. Within this task, an interactive tool for mapping the evolution of the characteristics of the CFR fleet was scheduled. The general objective of the task 2.1.2 was the analysis of competition with other activities and interactions with the environment. The task is considered in the second part of this report.
