Development and test of a sorting grid for the fishery on Norway lobster (38742)

  • Madsen, Niels (Project Manager)

Project Details


Goal of the project was to develop and test a sorting grid for the Norway lobster fishery in Kattegat and Skagerrak, with the aim to improve bot the size selectivity for Norway lobster and allow high escapement of cod. A second requirement was, that the sorting can be deployed from smaller vessels and is easy to handle.

Within the project, a flexible sorting grid was developed which can be hauled directly on the net-drum and can be handled on small fishing vessels. The grid was designed and tested with different set-up of bars and colors.

As an alternative for a sorting grid, a sorting frame was developed to be inserted in the upper panel of the cod end was tested in comparison.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua.
