FAO EAF Toolbox. The Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) has been adopted by the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) as the appropriate and practical way to fully implement the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. EAF is a risk based management planning process that covers the principles of Sustainable Development including the human and social elements of sustainability, not just the ecological and environmental components.
The EAF Toolbox has been designed to guide users through each of the four main EAF management planning steps and activities using simplified text and clear instructions.
The toolbox also helps users decide which tool(s) could be most appropriate for each step given the type of fishery, their resources and capacity.
