EFTP Discard reduction ideas

One of the main problem of the fishing activity are the discards. In the EU, the rejected and often dead fish and shellfish that are thrown back do not have to be counted against quotas.Globally, discarding is estimated to be 8% (6.8 million t) of the total volume of fish caught annually (Kelleher 2005). Kelleher (2005) also noted that 1.3 million tonnes of this discarding occurs in FAO area 27 which includes much of the EU’s EEZ.
