It was largely based on the report of the ICES Mesh Selection Working Group, 1959-1960. It describes methods for measuring the selectivity of most types of fishing gear: trawl, Danish seines, gill nets and hooks. An expanded review of methods for measuring the selectivity of gill nets was then produced by J.M. Hamley, (1975).

the mesh size. The purse seine nets and ring seines of Kerala are criticized for its very small mesh size (10-18 mm) destroying the fish wealth, as very small fish and juveniles cannot escape the net. The newly introduced purse-seine net has 45 mm mesh which has improved the catches.

These trials represent an on-going effort to improve selectivity, particularly with an eye to the forthcoming landing obligation, and will be fed into the industry Nephrops focus group which is considering further in TR2 gear. TRI fishing gear: bottom trawls, seines and similar towed gears, excluding beam trawls of mesh size equal to or larger than 100mm.

Size-dependent vulnerability of juvenile bay anchovy

9.1 m beach seines and 4.9 m otter trawls were used to capture juvenile bay anchovy. Seines were never re-trieved to the beach, but rather were pursed in the wa-ter column after seining for 1 to 2 min. Otter trawls were fitted with a rectangular PVC frame (1.0× 0.5 × 0.5 m), modifying the cod end into a live box. To minimize han-

Finally, the selective effect of changing the mesh size on cod end size selection in the Danish seine fishery was predicted, and those predictions were compared with historical results for cod end size selection in similar cod ends when applied to demersal trawling. METHODS Sea trials and gear specifications. Sea trials were carried

Basic Principles of Design of Fishing Gears and their

Body size and shape determine the mesh size required to enmesh and hold the fish in gill nets and the mesh size to retain the target size groups of the species without gilling in the trawls, seines and traps. Body size is also related to the tensile strength requirements for the netting twine in gill nets and hook size and lines in hook and line.

square-mesh codends made from between 27- and 29-mm knotless polyamide mesh hung on the bar were recommended for most commercial trawls, seines and stow nets. Regulations on key factors other than mesh size that influence efficiency and selectivity were recommended for all gears.

Marine Research, Bergen, Norway, started to develop a technology for size selection of saithe and mackerel in purse seine based on rigid sorting grids of aluminium, stainless steel or/and polyester composite, mounted to the breast Of the bunt. The first preliminary trials were conducted on saithe in net pens (Misund and Skeide 1992).

Principal mechanisms used in fish capture are (i) filtering e.g. trawls, seines, traps; (ii) Tangling e.g. gill nets, entangling nets, trammel nets; (iii) Hooking, e.g. hand line, long line, jigging; (iv) Trapping, e.g. pots, pound nets; (v) Pumping, e.g. fish pumps. Main behaviour controls used in the fish capture process are (i)


During the five trials by the selection net panels in the mackerel purse seine ofMN Selvaag Senior in 1992, most ofthe meshes both in the knotted net and in the knottless ultra cross net were rapidly c10gged by gilled mackerel. The size selection through these net panels therefore stopped rather quickly.
