Knowledge Transfer Activity: "Knowledge on discards: A dialogue with the European Fisheries Control Agency"
2 Feb 2017
COLUMBUS Knowledge Transfer Fellows on Governance and Fisheries identified knowledge from the Life-ISEAS, DISCARDLESS and MINOUW projects of relevance to the European Fisheries Control Agency. These Knowledge Outputs were presented at a meeting in Vigo, Spain, on 2 February 2017. The meeting was intended to inform EFCA of new scientific evidence that might support its actions relating to fishing discards and the application of current regulations, and provide a platform for EFCA to provide feedback on knowledge needs from their perspective.
