To strengthen the research group activities by means of a strategic plan focused on five main concepts: internationalization, knowledge transfer, training, production and science outreach. The most important actions are headed towards increasing the research group’s capacity and competitiveness to generate the necessary knowledge to ensure protection, conservation and sustainable exploitation of marine organisms. Priority is given to exploited species and to protected or endangered species. This knowledge will be used to develop the necessary instruments to apply an ecosystem approach to management and exploitation (fisheries and aquaculture) of marine living resources.
