Project GHOST

The project GHOST - co-funded under the LIFE + Biodiversity Instrument of the European Union, promotes concrete measures to preserve and improve the ecological status of the rocky habitats (Tegnùe) in the north Adriatic sea. The impacts of abandoned, lost or discarded fishing gears (ALDFG) on marine biodiversity will be evaluated and the removed gears/nets processed to identify appropriate procedures for recycling/reuse. The economic value of the ecosystem benefits resulting from ALDFG removal/reduction will be also considered. A Code of Conduct will be drawn up and negotiated with fishermen to sensitize them about this issue. 
Finally a regulation addressing various issues associated to sustainable management of ADFG will be proposed as a reference tool for local managing authorities in order to mitigate/prevent environmental and economic damages highlighted by the project.
