The Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) has recently completed its Best Practice Framework for mitigating lost fishing gear globally. The framework covers all aspects of the seafood chain from gear manufacturers, to fishers, to government regulators, to the seafood supply chain, so it’s a very extensive document. The Global Ghost Gear Initiative would very much appreciate feedback from all sources, so if you have an interest in providing feedback on this extremely important issue, please go this page on the Global Ghost Gear Initiative web site.
The GGGI will also be having a side event to promote the Best Practice Framework and answer any related questions. This event will be held at the SeaWeb Summit in Seattle on Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 from 12:00 – 13:15. Click here for more information.
