Selective whitefish grid system for demersal towed gear fisheries in the North Sea and adjacent waters.

Objective

To develop a selective, user-friendly grid system for the bottom trawl and seine net fisheries for whitefish in the North Sea and adjacent waters, with the aim of reducing the bycatch of juvenile fish, and thus provide a more sustainable exploitation pattern for demersal gadoid fish species.

The catches and discarding of juveniles and the by-catch both of fish and of other species are two of the major problems in the North Sea fisheries. The ultimate objective of the project is do develop a selective grid system for demersal towed fishing gears that reduces this waste of resources to a minimum.
