      Selectivity of sorting grids was assessed using a double codend in which fish that escaped through the grid were captured in the lower codend while other fish were guided into the upper codend. The mean selection length (L 50) for European hake was cm and that for the Atlantic horse mackerel was cm with the mm square-mesh codend. Abstract. The influence of different codend nets mounting diamond-shaped (16, 20, 24, 28 and 45 mm, mesh side) in the performance of the commercial bottom trawl presently in use in the Strait of Sicily (Central Mediterranean Sea) to catch deep-water red shrimps, Aristaeomorpha foliacea and Aristeus antennatus, is two surveys carried out in fishing grounds in spring and summer Cited by:

The trawl run is controlled with the aid of the Scanmar Acoustic control system. The fishing-line was loaded by kg weights on each wing (the total weight was 1, kg). Bottom Trawls Bering Sea Combination Trawl. Bering Sea Combination Trawl is a four seam trawl that incorporates 2-bridle design which allows for ease of rigging, fishing, and maintenance. Low stretch riblines hold their shape effectively with heavy codend loads. Read More >> Aleutian Cod Trawl.

The small-mesh cover was attached to the exterior of the codend and held away from the meshes of the codend using two circular plastic tubes (2fl [51mm] inside.

Bottom trawl codend mesh selectivity for Bagrus docmac (Forskahl) from Lake Victoria by R. M. Chilvers Download PDF EPUB FB2

The methods of estimating codend selectivity for alternate\ud hauls are briefly described and applied to Bagrus docmac (forskahl) data from Lake Victoria. Certain inconsistencies are noted and it is postulated that they may be due to differential escapement of larger Bagrus docmac\ud through the trawl meshes when the different codends were : R.M.

Trawl and codend specifications for each vessel are provided in Table 2. A total of 20 tows was planned for each vessel, 10 with the control codend and 10 with the experimental codend. Four.

The effect of demersal trawl codend mesh shape and size on the selectivity of Red mullet in the Black Sea was investigated. Selectivity trials were conducted in August on a commercial trawl boat with conventional (40D), 36 and 40 mm square mesh (36S and 40S) and turned mesh codends (40T90).

The estimated L 50 for hake with the square mesh codend ( cm) is closer to the current minimum landing size (MLS = 20 cm) and significantly higher than that of diamond mesh codend (L 50 = cm). Clearly, the 40 mm square mesh codend would represent a marked improvement in the harvesting pattern of this commercially important by: The selectivity of trawl codends with mm standard mesh size in bottom redfish fishery was studied aboard Russian trawler “Leonid Galchenko”, in August-October The vessel is classified as the middle tonnage trawler of the Atlantic Size: KB.

Historically, the selective properties of trawls and other active gears were adapted by altering the size selection in the codend (Glass, ).This strategy assumes that most fish entering the gear drift toward the codend, where a simple size-selection process occurs: smaller fish with specific morphological characteristics have a greater probability of passing through the meshes and escaping Cited by: 8.

fishery we conducted a series of researches into study selectivity of bottom trawls in cod and flounder fisheries in the East Baltic Sea. Selective properties for trawl cod-ends of different type are determined basing methods of theoretical assessment for trawl cod-ends selectivity developed in AtlantNIRO by Yu.

Introduction. A small-mesh bottom trawl fishery for longfin inshore squid, Loligo pealeii, occurs throughout the year on the continental shelf of the east coast of the United States between Cape Cod, Massachusetts and Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (approximately 35°–42° N).L.

The test codend is attached to one of the trawls and a small mesh codend is attached to the other. The catch in the small mesh codend gives an estimate of the total fish population entering the test codend.

This report presents the selectivity data collected during the trials and examines the influence of window position and mesh by:. The selectivity of the square mesh top panel codend was higher than that of the narrow codend for hake (L 50 = cm), while it was similar for poor cod (L 50 = cm).

The impact to the seafloor from trawling is a compound of the weight of the net and the forward momentum of the gear as it is dragged forward.
