Organisation profile

DTU Aqua’s research into fisheries technology focuses on the development of selective and low-impact fishing gear which can help limit unintended by-catches and minimise the impact on the marine environment. 

Main themes within fisheries technology research

Research into fisheries technology has two main themes:

  • Low-impact, selective and effective fishing methods
    DTU Aqua conducts research in low-impact, selective and effective fishing methods which enable targeted fishing for specific species and sizes. The aim is to reduce by-catches and discards as well as to reduce the impact on the marine environment. 

  • Energy-friendly fishing
    The development of more energy-friendly trawl fishing is a new research field at DTU Aqua. Among other things, we conduct research into how trawls can be designed to be more easily pulled through the water. The goal is to reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the fishing vessels.
Head of section: Jordan P. Feekings
