The testing of Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) has started in Puglia. Last week a TED was mounted on the trawl net of the boat “Nuova Giovanna” in Bisceglie (Puglia), thanks to the precious collaboration of the fishermen. This is the first boat where the testing will be carried out. The staff of University of Pisa will monitor the quantities of target species caught by the trawl net with and without the mounted TED.
