Discards article In Fishing New (2 of 6). Behavioural trends.

In the second of a series of six articles, Mike Montgomerie, gear technologist at Seafish, gives his perspective on the discards issue and the work that Seafish, along with industry, has been doing to help develop new selective technologies and net-based fishing activities to reduce discards. In this second article he looks at how behavioural trends of fish can be exploited when designing and positioning discard reduction devices, or redesigning nets to reduce the number of fish discarded.
