Abstract

This report aims to develop a set of indicators that measure sustainable development of Arctic seafood production. It builds on an environmental, a social, and an economic dimension, three dimensions of sustainable development. Our indicator system provides decision support information and monitoring tool for relevant decision makers. It aims to facilitate orientation in a complex multitude of social and ecological systems as well as their intersection. The indicator set is structured as a pyramid made up of the three dimensions of sustainable development, subdivided into policy categories, each described by one or few indicator target areas, supplemented by a number of more contextual indicators. We give a short presentation of each indicator and assess data availability. While this report provides decision support it cannot stand alone and is part of the synthesis of the European Union project Arctic Climate Change Economy and Society.
