The NSAC hosted a Choke Avoidance Measures symposium on 2nd – 3rd November 2016 in Copenhagen.
Chokes and how to avoid them as the landing obligation is introduced was the focus of the symposium. The symposium brought together, scientists, fishermen, fisheries managers, environmental organisations and a range of other stakeholders to discuss potential choke situations and through an open exchange of ideas and opinions generate new ideas and fresh thinking of what can be done to avoid chokes occurring.
