Thank you for your interest in participating in this survey which aims to increase understanding of the fisheries in both French and UK waters. The aim of the INdIGO project, financed by the European Fund for Economic and Regional Development (FEDER), with an overall budget of €4.2 million, is to develop new fishing gear that is biodegradable in the marine environment and to encourage and facilitate the recycling of fishing gear. To carry out this project, 10 academic and private partners, French and English, have joined forces. The objective is to design fishing gear adapted to future users, by involving you from the outset in the design process. It is for this reason that we are approaching you and we thank you for having responded to our request. For more information, please click here.

This is a research study, and all answers are strictly confidential and completely anonymous. The survey takes about 15 minutes.
