The BIOMARIS project feedback webinar took place last 13th of April. The aim of this project, led by AQUIMER (with Sayari as service provider) and financed by France Filière Pêche, was to develop a robust scientific methodology to assess the impact of fishing activities on marine biodiversity and apply it to a specific case study.
- The first stage involved a literature review based on the latest scientific knowledge available on the environmental footprint of marine products as well as the latest ecological knowledge available. These data complement the various Lifecycle Analysis indicators to propose a methodology for improving the assessment of a product's impact on marine biodiversity.
- The second stage consisted of carrying out a case study of deep-sea saithe fishing in the North Sea, based on the data supplied by the project partners, Euronor and Sovintex. This case study provided a concrete validation of the methodology developed by Sayari.
- The third step was to communicate the results obtained during this webinar, available in replay below, and a scientific publication will be published soon.
