Shrimp trawlers often use a Nordmøre sorting grid ahead of a small mesh codend to avoid bycatch of juvenile fish while allowing shrimps to be efficiently caught. However, small fish can pass through the grid to enter the codend and risk being retained. The risk of retention for fish of differen...

The Nordmøre grid is the principle bycatch mitigation device in many shrimp trawl fisheries. However, in several of these fisheries, bycatch is a problem because small sized fish can pass through the grid and enter the codend together with the targeted shrimp. One such fishery is the Northeast ...

The snow crab (Chioneocetes opilio) fishery in the Barents Sea is carried out by large offshore vessels, as the fishing grounds are located far from shore and the gear must be transported back and forth over long distances. Therefore, fishers use stackable conical pots that allow large numbers of po...

In the reformed technical measures regulation, the European Union proposed a greater involvement of the fishing industry in the different managerial aspects of fisheries. However, having the industry as a main actor in gear development presents a new suite of challenges. The industry, while addressi...

This study examined the extent that eulachon (Thaleichthys pacificus) and groundfishes escape trawl entrainment in response to artificial illumination along an ocean shrimp (Pandalus jordani) trawl fishing line. Using a double-rigged trawler, we compared the catch efficiencies for ocean shrimp, eula...

The size selectivity and usability of two diamond mesh codends, a traditional two-panel codend versus an experimental four-panel ultra-cross knotless mesh codend, were compared using the covered codend method in the Iceland redfish (Sebastes norvegicus and S. viviparous) fishery. Results showed that...

A new codend concept developed and tested exhibited significantly improved quality of caught cod (Gadus morhua) compared to that of the conventional codend used in the Barents Sea bottom trawl fishery. However, the design of the new quality-improving codend raised concerns about its size selectivity...

In the commercial pot fishery for snow crab (Chionocetes opilio), size selection by the pots is important for reducing catch sorting and unintended mortality. In addition to mesh size and shape, selection in the pots relies on every crab contacting the netting meshes, which makes the process complex...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the extent of external damage (gear marks, pressure injuries, ecchymosis and skin abrasion) present on trawl-caught cod (Gadus morhua) and to examine whether the extent of damage could be reduced by introducing changes in the gear. We tested whether chang...

In the U.S. West Coast groundfish bottom trawl fishery, lengthy sweeps (>85 m) that maintain seafloor contact are traditionally used. While these sweeps are effective at herding groundfishes, their bottom tending characteristics increase the potential to cause seafloor disturbances, and injury an...
