The objective of the project was to ensure a sustainable Danish fishery for Norway pout through the development of a sorting grid that minimizes unwanted by-catch.

Through a series of grid designs and tests the project:
- developed a durable and easy-to handle grid which can sustain the large strains on gear and decks equipment typical of the Norway pout fishery.
- identified an optimal bar spacing for the grid, that reduces by-catch to the extent possible without jeopardizing the rent ability of the fishery through large losses of target species.

As a consequence of the scientific work in the project a sorting grid-system was made mandatory in the Danish trawl fishery for Norway pout to reduce unwanted by-catch (Danish legislation in 2013).

The project was coordinated by Danish Fishermen's Association.
