A study to identify, quantify and ameliorate the impacts of static gear lost at sea


This project follows on from work of the study DG-XIV contract 94/95 FAANTARED which assessed the ecosystem impact of "ghost fishing" by bottom set gill nets which had been abandoned or lost, and the impact of these nets on benthic habitats in shallow waters. The project extends these investigations to fisheries operating at depths greater than 40 meters and attempts to quantify the impact of ghost fishing mortality on stocks of commercially important species in the gillnet fisheries considered in the project. The impact of lost traps will also be considered to a limited extent in this project.
