DiscardLess will provide the knowledge, tools, and methods required for the successful reduction of discards in European fisheries. To achieve this, DiscardLess will work through collaborations between scientists, stakeholders and policy makers to support and promote practical, achievable, acceptable and cost-effective discards mitigation strategies, and to make the EU landing obligation functional, credible and legitimate. The collaborative approach of DiscardLess will ensure that the developed tools, information and strategies will provide relevant, acceptable and cost effective means with a wide uptake in society which will result in the achievement of the goals of the landing obligation.
