Technological & field results

The first phase of the MINOUW project (March 2015 - June 2017) has consisted of conducting 17 case studies spread across 7 countries. The objective is to develop and test solutions to the problems of unwanted catches, discarding and utilisation, hand-in-hand with fishermen and other actors in European fisheries, and to better understand the nature of discarding practices and their impact in ecological, socioeconomic and technical terms.
