There are many situations where fisheries need to be managed to meet biodiversity conservation objectives. However at present, many engaged in conservation of marine biodiversity have limited understanding of fisheries assessment and management, while those advising on the management of fisheries have limited knowledge of existing commitments and obligations to conserve biodiversity.

Within an EU context, appropriate management of fisheries has been required for some time to meet obligations under the Habitats and Birds Directives. More recently the objective of meeting Good Environmental Status for European Seas under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive will likely require further changes in fisheries management.
