The relative fishing powers of experimental gill nets were estimated for shorthorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus scorpius), Greenland cod (Gadus ogac), and Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua). The results suggested that fishing power was negatively correlated to the ratio between twine diameter and mesh size. Similar differences in fishing power could be inferred for American plaice (Hippoglossoides platessoides) where no mesh- size selection was evident.
