When is enough, enough? Quantifying trade-offs between information quality and sampling effort for fishing gear selectivity data
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-21)
There is general pressure throughout the world’s fisheries for the industry to have greater involvement not only in the development of fishing gears but also in the testing and documentation of their effect. In the European Union, the Common Fisheries Policy of 2013, together with the proposed reform of the technical measures regulation, highlights the need for greater flexibility in fisheries through ...
Understanding and predicting size selection in diamond-mesh cod ends for Danish seining: a study based on sea trials and computer simulations
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-06-28)
Danish seining is an important ﬁshing method used to harvest demersal species. Knowledge about the size selectivity of different demersal species with this type of ﬁshing gear is therefore of importance for managing the exploitation of marine resources. However, there are only limited data on size selection in cod ends in this ﬁshery. Sea trials were therefore carried out to collect size selectivity ...
Industry-led fishing gear development: Can it facilitate the process?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-16)
In the reformed technical measures regulation, the European Union proposed a greater involvement of the fishing industry in the different managerial aspects of fisheries. However, having the industry as a main actor in gear development presents a new suite of challenges. The industry, while addressing an issue in the fishery, can modify several aspects of a fishing gear simultaneously, without ...
