Strategies for the gradual elimination of discards in European fisheries (Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement 633 680)
DiscardLess will help provide the knowledge, tools and technologies as well as the involvement of the stakeholders to achieve the gradual elimination of discarding. These will be integrated into Discard Mitigation Strategies (DMS) proposing cost-effective solutions at all stages of the seafood supply chain. The first focus is on preventing the unwanted catches from ever being caught. This will promote changes in gear using existing and innovative selectivity technology, and changes in fishing tactics based on fishers’ and scientists’ knowledge.
The second focus is on making best use of the unavoidable unwanted catch. Technical and marketing innovations will be detailed from the deck, through the supply chain to the final market, including monitoring, traceability and valorization components.
