Photo Exhibition "Fishermen and sea birds, allies for a sustainable sea" (MedAves Pesca project / SPEA)

Bycatch of seabirds by fishing vessels is currently a major conservation issue worldwide and is often cited as one of the causes that has led to population declines of different species of seabirds. These incidental catches also have negative impacts on fishers, consuming too much crew time and damaging fishing gear. It is therefore essential to establish partnerships between the fishing industry and the scientific community to find joint solutions.
