Report of the Expert Consultation on the Marking of Fishing Gear. Rome, 4–7 April 2016
PDF File Size: 389 KB | Download   
Abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG) is a significant component of marine litter and may have serious impacts on habitats, fish stocks and other marine species. ALDFG may result in reduced profits and increased operational cost for vessel owners/operators and may be a significant cost to the relevant authorities in attempting to address this global issue. In addition, risk factors associated with navigation and safety at sea will become more prevalent if ALDFG is not reduced and managed. Causes of ALDFG include excessive fishing effort, gear conflicts, extreme weather, operator error and deliberate abandonment. ALDFG is also linked to illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing as IUU fishers are more prone to discard their fishing gear at sea.
