Size selectivity and length-dependent escape behaviour of haddock in a sorting device combining a grid and a square mesh panel
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-04)
Size selectivity of a new sorting section combining a sorting grid and a square mesh panel was tested for haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) in the Barents Sea demersal trawl fishery. Sampling data for a wide size range enabled investigating the selection process for this species in detail, both for the grid and the square mesh panel. Contrary to earlier studies modelling size selectivity for grids ...
Size selection of cod (Gadus morhua) and haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) in the Northeast Atlantic bottom trawl fishery with a newly developed double steel grid system
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-06)
In recent years, Norwegian fishermen have reported problems with fish accumulation in front of the mandatory sorting grids (Sort-X, Sort-V, and Flexigrid). These problems are associated with high fish entry rates and low water flow through the grid sections. In this study, we replaced the lifting panel in the original design of a sorting grid section (Sort-V) by another steel grid (“lower grid”) in ...
Combination of a sorting grid and a square mesh panel to optimize size selection in the North-East Arctic cod (Gadus morhua) and redfish (Sebastes spp.) trawl fisheries
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-27)
Sorting grids and square mesh panels are the two most-applied technical devices to supplement codend size- and species-selection in demer- sal trawls. In the Barents Sea gadoid fishery, the compulsory size-selectivity system comprises a mesh section with a sorting grid followed by a diamond mesh codend. We tested the size-selective performance of a new sorting section that comprised a sorting grid ...
Size selection of Greenland halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides) in the Norwegian bottom trawl fishery with a newly developed double grid system
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
Greenland halibut (<i>Reinhardtius hippoglossoides</i>) is a commercially important species in the northeast Atlantic trawl fishery. However, direct fishing for it is not allowed and it can only be harvested as bycatch. We investigated for the first time the size selection of Greenland halibut in a newly developed double steel grid system designed for the cod and haddock bottom trawl fishery. In ...
Catch Efficiency of Groundgears in a Bottom Trawl Fishery: A Case Study of the Barents Sea Haddock
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-10)
The catch efficiency of two types of groundgear—a conventional rockhopper and a new type of groundgear called the semicircular spreading gear (SCSG)—was investigated through experimental fishing for Haddock Melanogrammus aeglefinus conducted in the Barents Sea. A retainer bag was attached behind the footrope of the trawl, and the number of fish that were overrun by the trawl was compared with the ...
Bycatch reduction in the Norwegian deep-water shrimp (Pandalus borealis) fishery with a double grid selection system
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-25)
Trawlers targeting Deep-water Shrimp (<i>Pandalus borealis</i>) in the North Atlantic use a Nordmøre sorting grid ahead of a small-meshed codend. Based on experimental fishing, the effect of adding a 9 mm spaced release grid behind the mandatory 19 mm spaced Nordmøre sorting grid, was determined. The performance in terms of size selection of the release grid and the two grids combined were assessed ...
