Could green artificial light reduce bycatch during Barents Sea Deep-water shrimp trawling?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-31)
The Nordmøre grid is widely used in shrimp trawls to reduce the bycatch of fish species. However, small-sized fish species and juveniles still pass through the grid and enter the codend, along with the targeted shrimp. This bycatch of small fish has a negative impact on the ecosystem due to increased fish mortality, and leads to additional sorting work onboard. Some small-sized fish that enter the ...
Can a large-mesh sieve panel replace or supplement the Nordmøre grid for bycatch mitigation in the northeast Atlantic deep-water shrimp fishery?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-26)
The Nordmøre grid is the principle bycatch mitigation device in many shrimp trawl fisheries. However, in several of these fisheries, bycatch is a problem because small sized fish can pass through the grid and enter the codend together with the targeted shrimp. One such fishery is the Northeast Atlantic deep-water shrimp (<i>Pandalus borealis</i>) fishery, where the use of a Nordmøre grid is mandatory. ...
