Our focus is on the small-scale set gillnet fleet, which fishes for cod in the spring, winter and autumn.

We are working with the Polish National Marine Fisheries Research Institute NMFRI, the Polish Society for the Protection of Birds (OTOP, BirdLife in Poland) and the local fishing fleet to test possible solutions to prevent or reduce bycatch in gillnets.

The map indicates the Polish Exclusive Economic Zone in the Baltic Sea. We plan to work in two sites in Poland- Pomeranian Bay in the West and Puck Bay in the East.
