The dangerous effects of Abandoned, Lost or Discarded Fishing Gears (ALDFG) is documented in the literature. However, there exists an overall lack of understanding in quantifying the pollution loads of fishing gears (FG) in territorial waters or on the beaches.

In the remote and data-less situations, local stakeholders’ knowledge remains the only source of information. Therefore, in this article, we propose: A methodology to extract fishers’ knowledge (FK) for generating evidence on FG handling and management practices in Norway.
