Professional fishermen in the Baltic Sea area cooperate to secure the future of their trade

Consumers wish to have fresh fish caught in the nearby waters, but the fish catches and the number of professional fishermen are declining continuously in the Baltic Sea area. The reduction in the catches is largely due to the rapidly growing seal and great cormorant populations. Fourteen fisheries local action groups (FLAG) in the coastal regions in Sweden, Finland, Estonia, and Germany have launched a joint project aiming at finding new means for the coexistence of fishermen and wildlife affecting fishing.
