Active Fishing

Need for nutrition

Marine fisheries have grown strong in size and efficiency over the decades. Trawling constitutes an important part of this sector and provides high quality seafood. Through technological improvements (digitalization in detection, automation in catch and processing and improvement on storage and product quality preservation) and behavioral changes, the fishing sector can substantially decrease the damage to aquatic ecosystems, reduce emissions and lower its fuel costs. It is our responsibility to fulfil this need.
