Excluders Designed to Reduce BycatchMay 8th, 2013
It’s encouraging to see that (in our growing hunger for both food and money) we still are concerned about the impacts of our actions on the environment. An example: In the Pacific Hake Fishery there are two types of quotas. First, a quota on the total annual catch. Second, a quota limiting the allowable bycatch — protected species that are scooped up into the nets along with the desired fish. To help fishermen reach the first quota without reaching the second, special excluders were developed. The performance was measured by quantifying elements of the catch through platform scale measurement.
The report is at www.nmfs.noaa.gov.
