GAP2 is about making a difference to an issue of significance to the whole of society; the wellbeing of the marine environment and the sustainability of fisheries upon which society depends for food. It builds on the relationships, processes and plans arising from GAP1 by enabling Mobilisation and Mutual Learning (MML) actions that promote stakeholder participation in the debate on and development of research knowledge and structures relevant to emerging policy on fisheries and the marine environment. The aims are to promote and enable processes for open and effective participation of stakeholders in research and management, and demonstrate through specific examples and critical evaluation, the role and value of stakeholder driven science in the governance of fisheries and the marine environment. DTU Aqua is the case study leader of one of the selected cases of GAP2.
