- BENTHIS Scientists from CEFAS, Bangor University and Wageningen Marine Research (IMARES) participated in two Workshops organised by the Best Trawling Practice Initiative http://trawlingpractices.wordpress.com/. This initiative has a global scope with partners from the North and South America, Australia and Europe. The aims are (1) to assemble data bases on the extent of trawling, habitats trawled, impacts of trawling on different biota in different habitats and impacts of trawling on ecosystem productivity and services. Once these data are assembled and analysed these data bases will be made public; (2) Analyse the data bases to evaluate the overall extent of trawl impacts on biota, productivity and ecosystem services, to the extent possible by geographic regions; (3) Identify a range of “best practices” for trawling and determine the consequences of adoption of different best practices on biota, sustainable food production, ecosystems and ecosystem services.
- Presentation of BENTHIS to the fishing sector
- Scientist from IFREMER have presented the BENTHIS project at several meetings with the fishing sector. The objectives of the project to work on trawling impacts and to test and develop relevant and efficient alternative strategies minimizing benthic impact by close collaboration with fishing industry have created a lot of concern in the fishing sector. A communication strategy was therefore developed, that takes account of the different levels of organisation of French professional fishermen, to inform the fishing sector about the different steps of the project and to get their feedback. We participated in the following meetings in 2013: (1) National French committee (CNPMEM, Paris 17/05/2013, http://www.comite-peches.fr/); (2) Benthic and Demersal species commission (CEBDGG/CNPMEM, Paris,Feb 2013 and Nov.2013); (3) Loire Regional Committee (CRPMEM, Nantes); (4) Aglia association (AGLIA, Lorient, http://www.aglia.org/).
