The North Sea brown shrimp (Crangon crangon Linnaeus, 1758) fishery became Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified in 2017. As part of the certification, the fishermen proposed to incrementally increase the mesh size of the codend used from 22 mm to 26 mm. As this increase in mesh size could resu...

This study investigated the size selectivity and catch efficiency in the North-east Atlantic demersal trawl fishery targeting cod (Gadus morhua) and haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus). The use of a sorting grid followed by a size selective codend is compulsory in this fishery. Experimental fishing w...

The reduction of juvenile catch and discards are important targets in fisheries policy. This work examines how selection models can predict the size structure (LFD) of discards and landings considering the effects of area, time period, gear and fisher behaviour. Additional exploitation indicators re...

The influence that mesh size, the number of open meshes around the circumference, twine thickness and catch size have on the size-selection of plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) in otter trawl codends is investigated by synthesising the data from 164 hauls using 25 gear configurations during 9 trips. ...

The escape of small smolt through farm cage netting is a major challenge faced by the Norwegian salmon farming industry. Escape can occur when the smolt placed in the cages are smaller than the size estimated by the farmers. Furthermore, one may assume wrong mesh-properties as the cage netting chang...

To prevent unwanted fish bycatch from entering the trawl, we modified a counter-herding device, FLEXSELECT, developed for a Northeast Atlantic Nephrops (Nephrops norvegicus) trawl fishery. FLEXSELECT, which was designed to direct fish away from the trawl by means of sweeping ropes in the herding are...
