Understanding the Size Selectivity of Redfish (Sebastes spp.) in North Atlantic Trawl Codends
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
The majority of trawl selectivity studies for the three redfish species of particular commercial importance in North Atlantic fisheries: Sebastes marinus, Sebastes mentella and Sebastes fasciatus, are based on data collected from diamond mesh codends with mesh sizes ranging from 88 mm to 147 mm. We demonstrate how results from these studies can be understood by morphological characteristics of ...
Size selectivity of redfish (Sebastes spp.) in the Northeast Atlantic using grid-based selection systems for trawls
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
Using experimental data and a model to predict size selection based on morphological data, we investigated size selection of redfish (Sebastes spp.) in the grid-based selection systems used in Northeast Atlantic trawls. We found that not all redfish make physical contact with the spacing between the bars in the sorting grids while they pass in the direction of the codend, and therefore the ...
