Test and demonstration of a selective Nephrops trawl (4307)

Project Details

Description

This aim of this project was testing a newly developed and more selective fishing gear onboard a smaller vessel in the Danish Nephrops directed fishery in Kattegat and Skagerrak. The selective effect of different selective devices can vary with the type and size of the vessels using the gear. The Danish fleet operating in Kattegat and Skagerrak covers very different vessels, both with regards to size and type. The aim of this project was to test the applicability of a selective sorting panel, developed and tested on larger vessels using larger trawls, on a small vessel and compare selective effect across different vessel sizes.

The project was coordinated by DTU Aqua.
