    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    Remote sensing research missions on board Dutch freezer trawlers in the Mauritanian EEZ in 2003 have focused on the relationship between water temperature, trawling tactics, and by-catch. During the research missions, which last 8-12 days each, satellite images of sea surface temperature (SST) are received by the trawler on a daily basis and tows are planned on the basis of oceanographic information to limit search time and minimize by-catch of non-target species.
