 Project objective

Bottom trawling is one of the most common fishing practices worldwide. It involves towing of nets along the seafloor to harvest benthic and demersal living resources for human consumption or industrial uses. The widespread and intensive use of these fishing activities on the continental margin has raised concerns in the European Union about the sustainability of this practice. The impacts of bottom trawling on the seafloor have been extensively investigated in shallow environments. However, very few studies have addressed the effect of continued trawling activities at depths beyond the shelf break. The main objective of TrawledSeas is to characterise the impact of bottom trawling, in terms of extent, rates and volume change, on the morphology of different geological and climatic deep (>200 m) seafloor settings. The project is based on an interdisciplinary approach that combines the quantitative analysis of high-resolution multibeam data with geophysical and sedimentological information, in situ observations and satellite-based vessel tracks. These data will be provided by leading research groups or derived from European and global databases of open geospatial data. A main component of the methodology consists of the development of a new automated marine landscape mapping technique to quantify the morphological signature of bottom trawling at fine and mesoscale, which will be conducted at the University of Malta and complemented at the Geological Survey of Norway. The collaborative nature of TrawledSeas will reinforce the researcher’s interdisciplinary background and international network. The project will also contribute to the researcher’s career development by providing technical skills on geomorphometry and research expertise on different geological settings, which will provide her with the high scientific profile necessary to develop innovative and integrative projects and to apply for national and European funding calls such as an ERC grant and Horizon 2020.
