INTERESSI

Expert in efficiency and selectivity research; fishing gear technology and fuel saving; measurements of the engineering performance of the fishing gears at sea using underwater instrumentation; fishing gear design; netting material properties; modelling and performance; physical and biological impacts produced in the marine environment by human activities.

He is on the scientific committee of the international conferences on fishing engineering IMAM 2007, IMAM 2011 and e-Fishing 2010. He has been the responsible scientist in several EU and national research projects and attended as expert in several STECF and DGFISH Working Groups and many other international and national committees on fisheries.

He has been working on both commercial and research vessels, and is an expert in the process of research and development of fishing gears, of which some prototypes are being used by fishing industry. He is holder of three patents pending.

ATTIVITÀ

Since 2010 he is member of the EU Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF). Since 2009 he is President of the National Commission UNITEX SC140 ”Fishing nets and ropes”, for the standardization of the European textile sector within the Technical Committee CEN/TC248 “Textiles and textile products”. Since 2005 he is responsible for the Fishing Technology Unit at CNR. Since 2003 he is Chair of the “Local Italian Chapter of the Eco-Ethics International Union (EEIU)”. Since 2002 he is an official Member of the ICES/FAO Working Group on Fishing Technology and Fishing Behaviour (WGFTFB) and since 1999 he is member of the Italian Society of Marine Biology (SIBM). Since 1994 he has been Chief Examiner for Professional Fisheries license issued by the Italian Port Authorities.
