This project aims to compile and utilise existing information on protected species interactions in the inshore trawl fisheries. A fine scale review of operational practices and protected species interactions will be conducted and used to characterise and compare the various subsets of the inshore trawl sector. Outputs of the project will be used to develop and implement best practice advice for a range of smaller vessels via the various liaison programmes operating through the fleet.
Project Objectives :
1. To characterise the nature and extent of protected species interactions in various sectors of the inshore trawl fisheries.
2. To provide recommendations on whether the level of current mitigation is adequate and whether alternative mitigation methods could be recommended.
