The kite cover : a new concept for covered codend selectivity studies

Niels Madsen, K.E. Hansen, T. Moth-Poulsen

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The covered codend method is that most commonly used for estimating the size selectivity of codends for towed fishing gears. A codend cover held open by kites has been developed to improve the performance and handling properties compared to the hooped covers normally used. The new cover can be wound directly onto the net drum as the catch is hauled. The development and testing of the cover in a flume tank, where it was compared to a hooped cover, are described as well as the practical experience obtained when using the cover at sea.
