Pesca TartaFree

TartaLife is mentioned in the last two FAO publications

Our project was mentioned in two recent FAO publications on the overview of bycatch of protected species and possible solutions to mitigate it.

The work carried out within the TartaLife project for the experimentation of mitigation devices for the accidental capture of sea turtles has been rewarded once again. Two very recent FAO publications have in fact cited the results obtained during the 6 years of the project.


The first concerns an overview of the accidental capture of vulnerable and protected species in the Mediterranean and Black Sea. The publication can be downloaded for free here:


The second concerns the possible mitigation measures put in place to reduce this accidental capture. This publication is also available for free, and can be downloaded here:
