Size selection in commercial snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio) pot fisheries is important for reducing on-board sorting and unintended mortality of undersized individuals. In this paper, we tested whether snow crab of various sizes geometrically could pass through diamond meshes of different sizes and...

Square mesh panels (SMPs) are selective devices used extensively to supplement codend size selectivity in trawl fisheries. Therefore, predictions of the effect of mesh size in both SMPs and codends on size selectivity are valuable. Here, we established a framework to predict the size selection of...

This article describes a method for the quantitative analysis of fish behaviour relative to selection devices in trawl gears. Based on video observations, the method estimates probabilities for a given event to happen and establishes behavioural tree diagrams representing and quantifying behavioural...

In the North-East Atlantic demersal trawl fishery targeting cod and haddock, the interest on fishing gear designs that preserve fish quality and welfare has grown. However, the gear configurations tested so far imply practical challenges, therefore, more user-friendly designs are still sought by the...
