SMMR-Net Webinar: “Clean Catch”

June 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

View of Rocky Shore

The Sustainable Management of UK Marine Resources (SMMR) Network is excited to host another free Lunchtime Webinar! This month Chantal Lyons, Bycatch Projects Lead at the communications consultancy Mindfully Wired, will give an insight into:


Clean Catch

Reducing bycatch of sensitive species in UK fisheries – including marine mammals, seabirds, sharks, skates and rays – demands genuine collaboration with fishers and other actors from policy-makers to scientists to eNGOs. Clean Catch has sought to achieve this since its inception. The programme is now entering a new phase, which will see it add a second bycatch mitigation trial to its portfolio and deliver a range of other outputs including knowledge exchange across and beyond the UK, and locally-tailored and species-specific bycatch mitigation guides. In this webinar, communications lead Chantal Lyons will explore Clean Catch’s future and how this will build on the lessons of the past.


Chantal is Bycatch Projects Lead and part of the Science and Policy Team at Mindfully Wired, a multi award-winning, values-based communications consultancy. From supporting behaviour change and advocating for the environment to stakeholder engagement and inclusive, evidence-based policy, Mindfully Wired reaches a wide variety of audiences with their services.
