1 INCOFISH WP 2 WP Leader: David J. Starkey University of Hull, UK “Shifting Baselines” “Shifting Baselines” Start-Up Workshop Kiel, 5 October 2005

2 INCOFISH WP2 Goal: To examine the patterns of long-term change in selected coastal ecosystems and thereby establish targets for the restoration and sustainable use of living marine resources

3 INCOFISH WP2 Objectives: 1. To identify, validate and assemble historical data relating to key aquatic resources in selected LMEs 2. To collate, analyse and disseminate historical data collected and processed in [1] 3. To establish baselines against which the current status of aquatic resources and LMEs can be evaluated

4 Deliverables: INCOFISH WP2 D2.1: construct database of historical data (available through WP1, month 19) D2.2: assemble baseline data from 2.1 in database (supply to other WPs; disseminate via WP1, month 25) D2.3: report on baseline data and analysis (month 34) D2.4: publish 5+ scientific papers (month 34)

5 Milestones: INCOFISH WP2 Workshop 1:“Baselines: A Viable Concept?” (March 2006; Estonia) (March 2006; Estonia) Workshop 2: theme to be decided (July 2007; Galapagos)
