We investigated the effect of bait type and bait size on the catch ef fi ciency of a demersal longline fi shery targeting European Hake Merluccius merluccius in the North Sea. Automation of the labor-intensive processes onboard fi shing vessels requires fi nding alternatives to the traditional bait ...

Sorting grids and square mesh panels are the two most-applied technical devices to supplement codend size- and species-selection in demer- sal trawls. In the Barents Sea gadoid fishery, the compulsory size-selectivity system comprises a mesh section with a sorting grid followed by a diamond mesh cod...

The present study reports results of a small-scale preliminary experiment to evaluate whether lifting trawl doors and sweeps from the seabed can lead to a reduction of by-catch in the Northeast Arctic shrimp trawl fishery. We carried out a catch comparison and catch ratio analysis between two gear c...

Most selectivity experiments employ either the covered codend or paired gear methods. It is not always possible, however, to use these methods. Owing to operational, biological and/or environmental considerations, there may be no obvious way or it may be inappropriate to pair the test and control da...

...tFuel consumption and environmental concerns have led bottom trawlers fishing for cod (Gadus morhua) inthe Barents Sea to use semi-pelagic doors. However, this change may affect fish herding and consequentlythe catch efficiency of the gear. In this study we compared the catch efficiency of two diffe...
