Click, click and away? A new international research project investigates long-term benefits and impacts by using acoustic warning devices for harbour porpoises

In order to reduce bycatch of harbour porpoises in gillnets, fishermen have been using so-called Porpoise ALerting Devices (PALs) voluntarily off the coast of Schleswig-Holstein since 2017.
