NetTag kickoff meeting at CIIMAR

The Kickoff meeting of the NetTag project took place at CIIMAR on the 11th february.

NetTag project aims to reduce and prevent marine litter derived from fisheries by working directly with fishers through an integrative preventive approach of reducing lost gear by using new technologies (acoustic system), which will help fishers to localize and recover their lost gears; and by promoting better practices on-board regarding management of fishing waste, through awareness actions organized by fishers associations for fishers.

NetTag is supported by EMFF - European Maritime and Fisheries Fund e EMFF Work Programme 2017.
