Abstract
  • A general discard ban is currently being introduced within the Common Fisheries Policy of the European Union.  The gradual implementation of this landing obligation (LO) started in the beginning of 2015 and is to apply to all fisheries within the EU by the beginning of year 2019. A major challenge related with the implementation of the LO is how to deal with unavoidable, unwanted catches (UUC) on-board fishing vessels and how to establish applicable incentives or enforcement mechanisms to ensure that UUC are landed. The focus on UUC on-board fishing vessels within EU has mainly been on monitoring, control and surveillance, where Fully Documented Fisheries have been at the forefront. There has however not been much attention given to what can be done with the unwanted catches once they have been taken aboard the fishing vessels. This paper addresses these challenges, identifying available alternatives and technologies, as well as their applicability within selected EU fisheries. The paper also identifies solutions already in use in fisheries with long and successful experiences of discard bans. A key component in implementing a successful discard ban is either to establish monetary incentives to land UUC or efficient enforcement mechanisms. Both alternatives have been applied in different fisheries with variable success, providing important lessons that need to be taken into consideration within the context of the CFP discard ban.
