Invited speaker: Greg Hamman (Marine Instruments)
“Discard Monitoring and Evaluation with Electronic Monitoring Technologies”

Advances on-board

Advances on-board

Innovative gears and identification/quantification of the total catch.

Session focuses on selective gears, exploring both more conventional selectivity measures as well as breakthrough technologies. Moreover, new technologies for the full documentation of the catch can contribute to get high quality data, one of the main pillars of worldwide fishing regulations.

Afternoon session

14:30 to 16:30 Topic 2: Data manegement and processing

16:30 to 17:15  Coffee Break and Poster Session 1 ( Topics 1 & 2)

17:15 to 18:15 Topic 2 (Continuation): Data manegement and processing

20:00  Welcome Reception

Topic 2: Data management and processing
Chairman: Petri Suuronen (Luke -Natural Resources Institute Finland)
Brief presentation of Topic 2: “Solutions for data acquisition, management and processing of fisheries discards, with potential contribution for fisheries management”

Data management and processing

Data management and processing

Definition of an efficient modelling of fishing activity and new policies for resources assessment.

The monitoring of discards is critical to improve the quality and reliability of stock assessment and advice. The solutions for data acquisition, management and processing of fisheries discards, with potential contribution to the fisheries management will be discussed.

PRELIMINARY PROGRAM: DAY 2

(THURSDAY, 3rd May)

Morning session

09:30 to 10:30 Keynote Session: Tom Catchpole (CEFAS)

“Advances in Marine Technologies Applied to Discard Mitigation and Management”

10:30 to 11:00 Coffee Break

11:00 to 13:30 Topic 3: Solutions in land

13:30 to 14:30 Lunch

Topic 3: Solutions in land
Chairpersons: Jean-Pascal Bergé (IDMer) and Begoña Pérez-Villareal (AZTI)
Brief presentation of Topic 3: “Small decentralized processing unit or large scale processing plant?”
Invited Speaker: Ricardo I. Pérez Martín (IIM-CSIC)
“A Smart pilot plant to valorize biomass associated to the new landing obligation: The LIFE iSEAS initiative”

Solutions in land

Solutions in land

Innovative management solutions for the landing obligation compliance.

In the near future, the fishing discards that the recent EU policy forces to land in ports will be an important problem that must be addressed. This session tries to put in common innovative solutions for management of the whole capture, including valorization chains towards commercial opportunities in relevant novel final sectors (food, feed, medical, nutraceutics, etc.).

Afternoon session

14:30 to 16:30 Topic 4: Environmental and socio-economic implications
of recent fishing policies

16:30 to 17:15  Coffee Break and Poster Session 2 ( Topics 3,4 & 5)

17:15 to 18:15 Topic 4 (Continuation): Environmental and socio-economic
implications of recent fishing policies

20:00  Gala dinner – Pazo Los Escudos Hotel and Spa Resort

Topic 4: Environmental and socio-economic implications of recent fishing policies
Chairman: Francesc Maynou (ICM-CSIC)
Brief presentation of Topic 4: “Environmental and socio-economic implications associated to the implementation of the Landing Obligation”
Invited Speaker: Sveinn Agnarsson (University of Iceland)
“Using multi-criteria analysis to assess socio-economic impacts of change in management: The case of the Icelandic cod”

Advances on-board

Environmental and socio-economic implications

Socio-economic costs and impacts of implementation of the LO and discard ban policies.

Two main approaches will be addressed in this topic: 1 – Determining the socio-economic cost and impacts of implementation of the LO and discard ban policies; 2- Determining the capabilities of the proposed management alternatives for this new biomass in order to minimize the environmental and socio-economic costs of implementing the LO.

PRELIMINARY PROGRAM: DAY 3

(FRIDAY, 4th May)

Morning session

09:30 to 10:30 Topic 5: The future of the fishing sector
