Project Description

Some species have high survival post-catch, so can be granted an exemption from the Landing Obligation. If they survive being caught, landing such species would increase fishing mortality without benefit to stock conservation. This project explores whether Nephrops are eligible for such an exemption through trials within the large-scale fleet.
