Pratiques de pêche responsables pour une pêche durable

Report of the 2019 Regional Workshops on prevention and reduction of ALDFG


FAO in collaboration with the Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI), convened a series of regional workshops on best practices to prevent and reduce abandoned, lost and otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG) between May and November 2019. 

The main objective was to increase understanding and awareness of the Voluntary Guidelines for the Marking of Fishing Gear (VGMFG), relevant good practice as outlined in the GGGI’s Best Practice Framework for the Management of Fishing Gear (BPF) and provide FAO with recommendations on how to assist participating countries in the implementation of the VGMFG. 

The report of the 2019 regional workshops on best practices to prevent and reduce ALDFG is available here.
