In April 2018 FishAct ran another Citizen Inspector training in London, UK. Over the course of four days trainees would learn about anything from laws on fishing to fish identification, vessel and fishing gear monitoring to first aid and evidence collecting. In addition to the intense time in the classroom the team travelled to the port of Whitstable to put all the gained knowledge and skills into practice.
Nine newly trained Citizen Inspectors from the Netherlands, the UK and Germany are now keeping an eye on illegal fishing in Europe. With the support of these new CIs FishAct will be able to run several new campaigns this year in the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean.
