Our next Fisheries Management and Innovation Group (FMIG) bite-size meeting will focus on fishing gear selectivity and on-board technical innovation.

Effective fishing gear selectivity, aimed at reducing the capture of non-target species, remains a key issue for both the UK fishing fleet and the wider seafood supply chain. Join us at our Fisheries Management and Innovation Group bite-size meeting, where we'll look at the knowledge gained, and the good practice that has been developed through UK selective gear trials, as well as looking ahead at the latest on-board technical innovations.
