LogoDiscardLess Strategies for the gradual elimination of discards in European fisheries

Report on current practices in the handling of unavoidable, unwanted catches

The objective of this deliverable is to present basic back-ground information on discard mitigation issues and the available tools for battling the discard problem. Most of the discard issues and the available tools presented are not directly relevant for what can be applied on-board of the fishing vessels, but are nevertheless necessary information for project partners and stakeholders to identify possible on-board solutions.
