University research into integration of new technologies for sustainable and safe local fishing

© Universidade Nova de Lisboa

The Universidade Nova de Lisboa has collaborated with the ALA-ALA Fishing Association in the coastal and riverside areas of Almada to promote dialogue on the safety and sustainability of local fishing, with the aim of developing an ‘Integrated Technological System’.

The project involved the co-creation of a governance model with the fishing community to identify and solve problems with sustainability and safety of local fishing, as well as the co-involvement of fishers and researchers in developing an Integrated Technological System prototype to solve the problems identified. Legislators and public authorities were also involved to discuss the use of technological products developed.
