This meeting will look at recent developments in selective fishing gear innovation and Government priorities going forward.

Gear adaptations and selective technologies help to reduce catches of unwanted fish. Gear trials over many years have influenced the gear now being used in commercial fishing. Selective gear innovations can help advance sustainability (economic, environmental and social) in all wild capture fisheries. This Fisheries Management and Innovation Group bite-size meeting will look at recent developments, and Government priorities going forward.
