The goal of CIBBRiNA LIFE project is to achieve EU cross-border cooperation and fisheries engagement to establish regional monitoring programmes to achieve a steep change in the reliability of bycatch estimates and further develop, test, and implement effective mitigation measures for the incidental bycatch of marine mammals, birds, turtles and non-commercial fish. In the NSAC we are directly engaged in minimisation and, where possible, elimination of bycatch in the North Sea, determination of risk species, identification of mitigation measures, and implementation of monitoring programmes.

The NSAC supported this project proposal. If and when the project is approved, the NSAC members of the Demersal Working Group will monitor its progress.
