A multiple framework contract in cascade covering the international dimension of the common fisheries policy in the areas of competence of the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. The objective of this framework contract is to provide the European Commission with a flexible tool to request specific and timely scientific advice for fisheries management or other services needed for the provision of the advice, within the context of the external dimension of the common fisheries policy, and excluding the Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea for species not covered by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas. The advice and services are sought to support the implementation of the common fisheries policy by applying the precautionary and the ecosystem approach, while ensuring coherence with the European Union environmental legislation (e.g. Marine Strategy Framework Directive) and with the integrated maritime policy.
