Discards monitoring in the Gillnet Sole Fishery

F.J. Quirijns

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The Gillnet Sole Fishery Study Group monitored discards since 2011. This document describes results from the self-sampling. No observer trips in the Dutch Sole Gillnet Fishing have taken place under the EU data collection framework (DCF). Under the DCF The Netherlands are obliged to sample ten gill net fishing trips. However, it is not specified which type of gill net fishing trips should be sampled, i.e. no target species is specified. In 2011 observers only went on board gill net trips in which cod was targeted. In 2012, up to November 2012, no observer trips were carried out in these fisheries
