Our mission is to support sustainable fisheries by improving fishing gear technology and to restore biodiversity.
There is an urgent need to support sustainable fishing by minimizing negative seabed impact and maintain biodiversity at the fishing grounds.
The Pluto fishing door was introduced at COP26 in Glasgow by Seafish UK, as an important contribution to more sustainable fishing and how fishing gear can help to reduce carbon emissions.
Ocean pollution related to plastic waste is a giant problem facing the ocean. Millions of tons of plastic waste are discarded every year and much of this finds its way to the sea to become marine plastic waste.
Awareness of limited ocean resources and oceanic pollution has put a world-wide political and economic pressure on the fishing industry to improve fishing technology.
To minimise carbon footprint and CO2 emission, the Pluto doors will be produced in close distance to large market areas and recycling operations.
