Workshop on circular design of fishing gear

Circa 11.000 tons of end of life fishing gear end up into European seas yearly. Single-use Plastics Directive, adopted 5 June 2019, among other things provides a requirement for the European Commission to request European Standardization Organization (ESO) to develop a standard for the circular design of the fishing gear. Indeed, 80% of negative environmental impact of products at the end of life could be reduced at the product design stage. To date design and development of fishing gear has not incorporated environmental considerations (ecodesign) including circularity. A European standard will provide guidelines on how to voluntarily improve this.
