Abstract

In response to questions asked by ICES on the effects of pulse stimulation in commercial beam trawling on components of the marine ecosystem a number of preliminary studies were undertaken in the period between 1 September 2008 and 1 March 2009. These activities involved the exposure of cod to a simulated electric pulse under laboratory conditions and observation of behaviour, including the foraging response, and monitoring mortality and possible internal injuries such as vertebral damage by X-ray photography.
