An assessment of bycatch reduction devices in Kuwait's shrimp trawl fishery

Study Type: 

wild

Location: 

Kuwait

Target catch: 

Shrimp

Effect on bycatch species: 

SMT significantly reduced bycatch

Effect on target catch: 

SMT caught significantly larger shrimp but not significantly fewer shrimp

Fishing Gear: 

Field Study 641

Study Type: 

wild

Location: 

Gulf of Maine

Target catch: 

Pink shrimp (Pandalus borealis)

Effect on bycatch species: 

Reduced the bycatch of silver hake, red hake, American plaice and witch flounder compared to the Nordmore Grid and allowed larger fish to escape

Effect on target catch: 

The catch and size of pink shrimp was not significantly different between the Nordmore Grid and Rope Grid

Field Study 615

Study Type: 

wild

Location: 

New South Wales Australia

Target catch: 

Prawns

Effect on bycatch species: 

The Nordmore-grid codend caught 50% fewer yellowfin bream than the radial escape section net and 55% fewer than the control net. Both trial codends significantly reduced the predicted mean weight (36% Nordmore-grid and 74.3% radial escape section) and n

Effect on target catch: 

The codend with a radial escape section and the simplified Nordmore-grid retained fewer school prawns by weight 11.5% and 4.6% resepectively, compared to the control net.
