A workshop to list ecosystem services of diadromous fishes
Last September 17 and 18 (2019), members of DiadES met in Sukarrieta (Spain) at AZTI’s headquarters to discuss the Ecosystem Services (ES) provided by diadromous fishes.
During the first day, results from the workshop held at the kick-off meeting, where partners and stakeholders contributed, were checked against the literature review conducted since the kick-off meeting. From the whole list of ES identified, a smaller number was chosen based on specific criteria (such as whether the species already provides ES). Furthermore, the group discussed which methodologies should be used for the economic quantification of the different ES.
Data needed to develop the economic assessment of selected ES were debated on the second day as well as the links between the new biological models that will be developed and the economic assessment.
