Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The aim of this report is to present a simple and clear overview of the knowledge currently available about catches (landings and discards) of pulse fishing gears in comparison with conventional fishing gears and the effects of these new gears on the marine ecosystem and to identify gaps in knowledge. Comments are also made on management issues of electric pulse fishing. The pulse technique is applied in both the flatfish and shrimp fishery. This report focuses only on the pulse fishery targeting flatfish.
