GAP2 Scallops 2015 – The Presentations

In February 2015, GAP2 held its second pioneering workshop on management of the Channel scallop fishery, with input from French and UK fishers, NGOs, scientists, and national Governments. The event was aimed at developing concrete steps towards a long-term, regional management plan for this profitable – but data poor – fishery.
