Abstract

Selectivity of Nephrops in trawl codends is in general poor with resulting high discard rates and / or loss of legal sized catch. In the present study, the FISHSELECT methodology has been used to attain a profound understanding of the selection process of the species in order to identify means to improve the selectivity. It was found the size selection of Nephrops in trawl codends can be explained by combining contributions resulting contacts with the meshes for three different modes of orientations of the Nephrops.
