OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
The main objectives of this project are the following:
1) To develop an artificial bait for commercial deepwater species, mainly based on waste from fish processing plants which - will have a better or similar effectiveness than natural bait - will have a competitive price compared with the natural bait - will be more adequate than natural bait for mechanised longing will be easily available - will improve selectivity for fishing - will preferably offer the possibility of storage without freezing.
2) To define technically a factory dedicated to the production of the new bait and to study the feasibility of this new activity.
3) To study the repercussions of the new bait in the fields involved (fleet, processing plants and end-users).
The whole work will be carried out with an economic outlook, in a way to avoid solutions scientifically efficient, but economically unfeasible.
