"Quay Issues" talks Discards and the LO - free from Seafish and out now!



QUAY ISSUES is a magazine for the fishing industry. It tells stories unearthed during our annual Survey of the UK Fishing Fleet. Quay Issues looks at the challenges facing the industry and the creative and innovative approaches vessel owners are taking to overcome them.

In this video, we examine how trawl manufacturers and fishermen are working together to reduce unwanted bycatch by developing selective fishing gear which conform with the new EU Landing Obligation - banning the discarding of fish at sea.
