Latest study: Alternative Solutions for Driftnet Fisheries

Alternative solutions for driftnet fisheries

If you would like to know more about alternative solutions for driftnet fisheries then the latest study from Policy Department B might be what you are looking for.

More about the study: The principal environmental impact of driftnets is related to the bycatch of non-target species. In general driftnets have a high degree of size selectivity and can efficiently be regulated by mesh size. Few alternative fishing methods are available to catch the species targeted by driftnets,and the impact for some of these gears is controversial. Solutions are proposed to mitigate the environmental impact of driftnet fisheries by alternative fishing gears and improvement of selectivity.
