This workshop, held under the Life Berlengas project - Conserving threatened habitats and species in Berlengas SPA through sustainable management, aims to present and share results among different countries about the latest solutions that are being trialled to mitigate seabird bycatch. This shared knowledge and the debate between European and national authorities will guide managers, researchers and the fishing sector into the next steps to stop seabirds from being bycaught on fishing gear, in particular linking to the implementation of the EU’s seabird Plan of Action.
Note: The workshop will be held in English
