Citizen science programme

Thanks to the new app Fish&Click developed by Ifremer (French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea) as part of the INdIGO project, everyone can now contribute to an inventory of lost fishing gear found at sea and on the shore. This action will help to reduce the impact of plastic pollution generated by the fishing sector on marine ecosystems.

How can you take part? It’s very simple: when you go for a walk along the coast or go out to sea, keep your eyes and your smartphone open: if nets, traps, ropes, lines, anchors or buoys get in your way, log on to the Fish&Click app or to the website.
