Development of new tools to assess the environmental effects of fishing (TASSEEF) (39371)

Project Details

Description

The project aims to develop new knowledge about the indirect effects on the marine environment of fishing dredgers, in particular to develop new tools and methods at the level of entire basins to establish new knowledge about fishing effects.

The primary outcome of the project will be new tools for the management of shellfish fisheries in the Limfjorden. Specifically, it will be possible to establish:
- protection zones around eelgrass.
- ecosystem services that mussel fishing supplies in very nutrient-enriched regions.
- development of the scientific basis for the management of fisheries in coastal areas.
– mussel translocation/relaying.
- perennity of the tools.
