Abandoned, Lost, or otherwise Discarded Fishing Gear (ALDFG) contributes greatly to the marine plastic-pollution crisis. It has been described as the most harmful form of marine plastic debris, with estimates putting it at representing between 10% and 20% of all the marine litter in the world’s ocean.

ALDFG is also notable for its cross-cutting intersection of oceanic issues, including fisheries and marine pollution, implicating livelihoods, nutrition, health, biodiversity, economies, and more.Participants will join the session in Paris on Sunday, May 28, 2023 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm on the sides of INC-2.  The objective of this session is to bring together stakeholders engaged in various stages along the life cycle of fishing gear, to help identify opportunities for collaboration - and discuss how to best capture and address this problem during the INC negotiations.

The event will also aim to map the key players and their respective focus areas. The event will include opening remarks, presentation of case studies, and then the session will organize participants into breakout groups in line with the lifecycle stages of fishing gear.
