This working paper has two major objectives. First, it provides an introduction into the methodology of indicator systems as a management instrument in the framework of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) Operational programmes; and, second, it provides practical guidance for the authorities and stakeholders in Member States that are responsible for an EFF Operational programme. As guidance, the working paper suggests what a Member State should include in an Operational programme that will be adopted by the European Commission. The methods and approaches presented in this working paper are of an indicative nature. They need to be applied in a creative manner. The working paper encourages for a common development and further improvement of indicators in an EFF Operational programme. Copyright authors.
