Professional fishermen in the Baltic Sea area cooperate to secure the future of their trade

Four more FLAGs have joined the initial ten FLAGs that came together last January to collaborate on the transnational cooperation scheme to research, analyse and raise awareness on the impact of seals and cormorants on fisheries communities and fish stocks in the Baltic Sea.

The partnership agreement is now signed and the 14 FLAGs in the coastal areas of Sweden, Finland, Estonia and Germany have launched a joint project aimed at finding sustainable solutions to the negative impact caused by seals and cormorants on fishing activities and stocks. The purpose of the project is to combine the results and views of research institutes specialising in natural resources and operating in different countries with the experiences and views of professional fishermen.

Find out more information on the project and on seals and cormorants in the press release.
