On June 2015 came into force the new " Piano per la gestione delle risorse alieutiche delle lagune della Provincia di Venezia”. Thanks to suggestions elaborated from GHOST results, some guidelines aimed at preventing and/or mitigating the ALDFG impact in the lagoon habitat and at arising public awareness on the need of sustainable fishing approach were introduced in the document. In particular, it was included in the Province plan the Action A12-R, which established the compulsory signaling of lost fishing gear due to weather or other unforeseeable events (Art. 7 paragraph 13 of the Regolamento per l’esercizio della pesca nelle acque interne e marittime interne della provincia di Venezia).
