DiscardLess will help provide the knowledge, tools and technologies as well as the involvement of the stakeholders to achieve the gradual elimination of discarding. These will be integrated into Discard Mitigation Strategies (DMS) proposing cost-effective solutions at all stages of the seafood supply chain.

The first focus is on preventing the unwanted catches from ever being caught. This will promote changes in gear using existing and innovative selectivity technology, and changes in fishing tactics based on fishers’ and scientists’ knowledge.

The second focus is on making best use of the unavoidable unwanted catch. Technical and

marketing innovations will be detailed from the deck, through the supply chain to the final market, including monitoring, traceability and valorization components.

DiscardLess will evaluate the impacts of discarding on the marine environment, on the economy,and across the wider society. The project will also monitor the actual developments before, duringand after the implementation of the landing obligation (LO), allowing comparison between intentions and outcomes.
