Type: Stockshots [long]   Reference: I-070577   Duration: 00:36:24  Lieu:
End production: 27/07/2011
On the occasion of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council held on 20 October 2011 that addressed the fishing opportunities for 2012 in the Baltic Sea, the Audiovisual Service of the European Commission produced a video stockshot which covers: - Fishing and fishing boats; - Aquaculture; - Fish auctions; - Fish processing plant; - Fish restaurant and fish markets; - Marine school; - Marine engine maintenance; - Fishery inspection. Almost 100 million inhabitants in nine different countries live around the Baltic Sea. Today, the Baltic, one of the world's most sensitive waters, is faced with great challenges. Environmental problems, such as fertilizer run-off, the discharge of poisonous waste, endangered species of fish and algal bloom have increased. The transport of goods, above all of oil, puts at great risk the marine environment. The Baltic is one of the world's busiest sea ways.

00:02:59 Vesa Tschernij, Manager at the South Baltic Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) and a fisherman, trying out a seal-safe cod trap fishery (4 shots) The Grey Seal population in the Baltic Sea has been growing since the end of the 1990's at an annual rate of around 10-12%. Today the number of grey seals is estimated at around 35,000 – 40,000. The majority of these seals live in the northern part of the Baltic Sea but as the population has grown bigger, the seals have expanded their territory southward. The increasing number of seals in the coastal waters has paralyzed the entire small scale fisheries (gillnets, hook and line, fyke nets, etc.). The South Baltic FLAG, together with the fishermen in the region, are developing a seal-safe cod trap fishery to replace the gill nets and hook and line, which will soon become obsolete like they have already in the northern parts of the Baltic Sea. 00:00:27
