The pilot project aims at providing a platform for exchange of knowledge on low-impact offshore fishing techniques among fishermen from the outermost regions with a view to developing and optimising these techniques and with the principal objective of alleviating fishing pressure on the coastal fish resources.

Priorities and funded actions:

Priorities
– Raising awareness of the opportunities to develop innovative fishing techniques allowing to divert fishing effort away from the coastal resources
– Developing and testing low impact fishing techniques adapted to the biogeographical conditions of each OR
– Creating alternative sustainable fishing opportunities that will help to consolidate jobs in the fishing industry and ensure a steady supply of fisheries products to local markets
– Exchanging of best practice on low-impact offshore fishing techniques between ORs, which will also do good to overseas countries and territories (OCTs) and third countries
– Improving communication among the OR’s fishing sectors as part of the good functioning of the Advisory Council on Outermost Regions

Among financed activities
– General management and implementation of the project
– Provision of scientific and technical support to the different phases of the project
– Provision of material, services and logistics for the execution of the project
– Collation of existing technical information on experimental fishing conducted on off-shore fishing grounds carried out under scientifically controlled conditions and properly documented
