The study will require the realisation of four different albeit intimately associated tasks:
· compilation of the existing knowledge on energy consumption and energy efficiency on
board fishing vessels,

  • collection of new, detailed information by fishery (métier) and by type of vessel
  • compilation of current technological solutions to improve energy efficiency
  • analysis of the information gathered, so as to provide fishing operators with a guide to
    assess the practical consequences, especially the economic ones, of adopting different
    alternatives to increase energy efficiency.
