The key scientific outputs from the DIAPOD project are of direct relevance to stakeholders with an interest in Arctic ecosystems. These include scientists and policy makers involved in fisheries management, and ecosystem modellers.

The outcomes of the DIAPOD project will be of direct importance to the management of commercially important fish species that feed on copepods, e.g. herring and mackerel. The main stakeholders are policy makers within the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the EU Common Fisheries Policy, and the North Pacific Marine Science Organisation (PICES).
