Influence of soak time on catch performance of commercial creels targeting Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) in the Mediterranean Sea
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-13)
Creel catch performance is known to be affected by the soak time in many fisheries. If creels maintained their efficiency over longer periods, increase in soak time should lead to proportional increase in catch quantity. However, the exact shape of this relationship is unknown for creel fisheries targeting Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus). If it was known fishermen could adjust their fishing ...
Size selection of Nephrops norvegicus (L.) in commercial creel fishery in the Mediterranean Sea
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-23)
In the Mediterranean Sea <i>Nephrops</i> (<i>Nephrops norvegicus</i>) is predominantly caught with bottom trawls, but it is also harvested with creels. While the size selection of <i>Nephrops</i> in bottom trawls is well documented, there is no previous information on creel size selection for this species. Therefore, sea trials were carried out to assess the selective properties of commercial creels ...
