Perceptions of European stakeholders of pulse fishing

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


This research project examines the concerns and questions of European stakeholders about pulse fishing, in order to assess to what extent the knowledge agenda on pulse fishing covers these issues. To get a first impression of the concerns about pulse fishing, and to get an idea of the stakeholders that express these concerns, an analysis was conducted of media items in the states bordering the southern North sea where pulse gear is used. In addition interviews were held with representatives from governments, NGOs, the fishing industry and scientists, and seven meetings were observed, national and international, where pulse fishing was discussed. An inventory was made of the substantive concerns that the stakeholders have about pulse fishing.
