The unintended impact of the European discard ban | Webinar with Lisa Borges
4 de December, 2020
On December 10, between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm GMT, Sciaena will organize a webinar entitled “The unintended impact of the landing obligation” with Lisa Borges from FishFix.
Lisa Borges is a fisheries science expert with extensive experience in multiple countries. She worked at the European Commission, where she was responsible, among other things, for defining new policies related to discards in European fisheries. In 2010, she founded the consultancy FishFix and this year published the paper “The unintended impact of the European discard ban” in ICES Journal, where she discusses the impact that the landing obligation, initiated in 2015, had on the fishing opportunities defined at the EU level and actual catches.
This webinar is part of a cycle of webinars organized by Sciaena as a way to promote public debate on key topics for our oceans.
The webinar will be in Portuguese and participation is free, but registration must be done through this link.
