Nephrops and CEtacean Species Selection Information and Technology

Objective

Twenty-three institutes propose to work together in two Task Groups, i.e. Nehru¿s and cetaceans to develop alternative gear modifications and fishing tactics in collaboration with the fishing industry to reduce by-catches in the relevant Nehru¿s and pelagic fisheries, without reducing the catch of target species significantly.
The project consists of ten work packages, as follows:
WP1: Management and co-ordination: Statistical planning, modelling and analysis: Species selective Nehru¿s gears: Alternative tactics Nehru¿s fisheries: Biological effects Nehru¿s fisheries: Cetacean by-catch and alternative tactics: Gear modifications Pelagic Trawls - Cetaceans: Impact on Cetacean stocks: Socio-economic repercussions
WP10: Dissemination and implementation The duration of the project is 38 months. Special emphasis will be given to disseminating the results of the worktop the fishing industry and recommending proper implementation of alternative gears and fishing tactics, as wells knowledge transfer between partners from North-West Europe and the Mediterranean. Biological and socio-economic effects will also be evaluated.
