Ecosystem-based management call for the adoption of management practices that explicitly account for the cross-linkages between ecological, economic and social components. I propose an approach to determine the goals of EBM in coastal temperate oceans through a literature review of initiatives where a social process has advanced research priorities for scientists and economists. By examining and compiling these research priorities I will to compile large datasets of the environmental, ecological and economic variables singled out by the social process. Going one step further, I will generate uncertainty estimates through simulations that I will incorporate into simple bioeconomic models. This formal approach will allow for a clearer definition and examination of EBM in coastal systems.
