Assessment of the current practices and local needs for developing smart antifouling strategies towards energy-efficient fishing boats in Turkey
Demirel, Yigit Kemal (Principal Investigator) Tezdogan, Tahsin (Co-investigator) Turan, Osman (Co-investigator) Akartunali, Kerem (Principal Investigator) Song, Soonseok (Researcher)
In Turkey, there are 13,000 artisanal fishing boats contributing to the income of at least 40,000 low-income fishermen and their families living in vulnerable communities. Typically, these fishing boats are of traditional design and inefficient in terms of fuel consumption. They may waste up to 44% of their fuel due to biofouling (organisms growing on boats), which also requires costly hull cleaning and antifouling procedures. Inadequate design and antifouling strategies aggravate the profitability and cause environmental problems such as increased Green-House Gas emissions and transportation of harmful non-indigenous species, while negatively affecting the expected growth in the fisheries sector as opposed to Turkey’s Vision 2023 targets for fisheries.
This project aims to investigate the current antifouling practices and identify the local needs for developing smart antifouling strategies towards energy-efficient fishing boats. This will be achieved by carrying out a joint inter-disciplinary pilot work with partners in Turkey with a focus on the technical feasibility, economic viability and environmental perspectives.
This will help the local fisheries to understand the importance of the optimum antifouling strategies, and hence to reduce unnecessary expenses and increase the profitability while reducing the environmental footprint. This project will establish partnerships for future GCRF calls.
