Environmental monitoring and assessment

Last changed: 08 May 2019

Data analysis forms an integral component of The Department of Aquatic Resources’ work on offering ecosystem-based advice for the management of aquatic resources in Sweden.

The Department of Aquatic Resources performs stock assessments, integrated ecosystem analyses, and develops biological indicators and food web models. We investigate the anthropogenic impact on marine and freshwater fish communities. Experts at our laboratories perform age and genetic analyses of fish and shellfish.

Our work is conducted

  • as a part of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES),
  • in the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM),
  • in the EU commission expert groups within the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF),
  • in the European Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture Advisory Commission (EIFAAC),
  • and via collaboration in international and national research programs.
