PFA and RVZ sign Green Deal for Clean Sea

10-03-2017
 
In the framework of the Green Deal for fisheries - 'Together for a clean sea ' already existing initiatives will be further intensified and extended. In recent years the PFA/RVZ already initiated the following activities aimed at minimizing the impact on the environment at sea by:
 
  • Separating on board of the vessels the produced waste in 7 categories (being paper/cardboard, glass/tin, plastic, household waste, old nets, oil residue and other chemicals, as well as organic waste.
  • Draining, recycling or recovering the separated waste ashore. And by already asking our net suppliers to recycle the used fishing nets.
  • Minimizing the use of cleaning products on board of  the ships as much as possible, and by exclusively using biodegradable cleaning products.
     
Also the new on-shore power facilities in the Dutch pelagic fishing ports of IJmuiden and Scheveningen contribute to a cleaner environment. For  more information: http://www.pelagicfish.eu and http://www.greendeals.nl/gd171-visserij-voor-een-schone-zee/
