Supporting collection, treatment and recycling of fishing gear
What we do
When fishing nets are approaching their end-of-life (EOL), the nets should be collected and disposed appropriately. Setting up a collection network in the demanding NPA circumstances requires extra efforts from all of those involved. On the other hand, this offers also an opportunity to recycle and eventually also reuse the collected materials. The main outcome of the projects is a Blueprint for collection, treatment and reuse of EOL fishing gear for the NPA region. In delivering this, CIRCNETS also prepares the stakeholders involved in fishing business for the implementation of the legislative changes.
