COFASP is an ERA-NET created to directly address actions envisaged within fisheries, aquaculture and seafood. It was created under the KBBE theme in FP7, and is part of the Europe 2020 strategy, which recognises bioeconomy as an important part of the strategy. The main objectives of COFASP are:

• To lay the basis for exploitation according to the precautionary principles and to enhance innovation in and competiveness of the primary sectors fisheries and aquaculture as well as subsequent seafood processing and distribution to the consumer.

• To define the science, information and data necessary to underpin the revision of the CFP and to ensure its successful implementation by designing complementary national research programmes and outlining monitoring and information/data sharing systems needed.

COFASP is a follow-up on the previous ERA-NET MariFish and based on the ERA-NET SEAS-ERA, it will run 48 months from its initiation on 1 February 2013, ending in 31 January 2017. COFASP has 27 partners from 16 countries in Europe. More information on the COFASP project and participating funding organizations is available on the COFASP website:
