Monitoring bijvangsten (WOT-05-001-004, WOT-05-001-014, WOT-05-406-004, WOT-05-406-130)

Project: LNV project

Project Details


Discard information by self-sampling programmes will be obtained for 160 trips from a reference fleet consisting of vessels from the beam trawl fishery with 80 mm mesh size, including Eurocutters, beam trawl fishery with 100 mm mesh size and the twinrig fisheries on Nephrops and demersal fish. Parallel to this programme ten trips onboard vessels of the reference fleet that are conducting self-sampling will be monitored with observers in order to be able to detect potential biased results of the self-sampling programme. Discard information onboard pelagic trawlers and the passive fishery (i.e. gillnet, handline and fyke fishery) will be obtained through an observer programme. Recording incidental by-catches of megafauna and rare fish species is part of all onboard observer programmes in this project.
