Our work with the fishing communities of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall aims to build more evidence on which future policies can be based. The ultimate aim is for fishers to continue to function in a way that preserves their livelihoods and enables stocks to be managed sustainably.
Associate Professor of Marine Ecology and lead of the Pollack FISP project
Close collaboration between scientists and the south coast charter skippers is vital for the success of the Pollack FISP project. The skippers we work with provide reliable and high-quality data, which hopefully will allow us to produce the evidence that's needed to support sustainable fishing in the future. Healthy pollack stocks are vital for the livelihoods of both the commercial and recreational sectors, so we are committed to doing what we can to learn more about this fascinating species.
