All developed products will be presented to local stakeholders through the organisation of 3 national stakeholder workshops and map-based interviews and validated using local stakeholder knowledge.
Fisheries managers and scientists, fishermen’s organizations and the general public will be invited in the workshops while map-based interviews will be carried out through visits to main fishermen organizations (e.g. Close and Hall, in press).
The 'stakeholder' process will take place during the second year of the project (spring 2007).
