The experiences and knowledge obtained by the observers that have been working for the MedBycatch project and sustaining the collaborations with fishers for many years is invaluable. Transferring their experiences and expertise will ensure the continuation, replication and scaling up of the observer programmes to the next generation of researchers and implementation to new countries in the Mediterranean and beyond.
- The Learning & Sharing Package for Bycatch mitigation is a collection of open access materials and tools that will foster good collaboration with the fishing community.
The project ‘Experiences and Knowledge Sharing for Building Strong and Maintaining Collaborations between Fishery Observers and the Fishing Community’ is funded by the MAVA Foundation and implemented in Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey by SPA/RAC, WWF Turkey, WWF Med, Birdlife Europe & Central Asia, TUDAV , DEKAMER, Doga Dernegi, AAO/Birdlife Tunisia , INRH, ACCOBAMS and MEDASSET .
