LogoDiscardLess Strategies for the gradual elimination of discards in European fisheries

Catalogue of selective devices tested in Danish Fisheries (in Danish)

In this report (In Danish) we gather knowledge and experience from fishing gear selectivity trials conducted in Danish waters over the last decade. The primary focus is on the by-catch of cod in trawl fisheries, but information has been collected for several other commercial species. It is thus possible to identify gears that can be used in cases where other species shall be avoided. In addition to a description of results from the different trials, the catalogue contains predictions for size selection in a wide range of mesh sizes, -shapes and -openings for several species central to the Danish fishery.
