In several countries fishers use fish traps. In the Netherlands not many fishers have experience in using this kind of gear. The seminar aimed to stimulate exchange of international experiences and to inform Dutch fishermen (small scale, set net and rod & line fishermen) about this kind of gear. It was supposed to give an answer to the question whether fishing with fish traps is a viable option for Dutch fishers fishing in the North Sea. Finally, ideas on how to move forward should be generated.
