    Deep Water Fishing Voyage, MT 'Luneda', Feb 74

    The wet fish stern trawler LUNEDA (J. Marr and Sons, Fleetwood) was chartered by the White fish authority on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for a 14 day voyage in February 1974. The purpose of the voyage was to make a start upon the assessment of the commercial viability of the stocks of deep water fish, especially grenadiers, which had been found in depths between 400 and 700 fathoms in surveys in 1973. During the voyage only 8 days fishing were possible because of bad weather conditions but the vessel nevertheless landed 680, ten stone kits of various species. The proportion of grenadiers landed (27% of the catch) was lower than anticipated from the earlier surveys but this was more than compensated for by a high catch (329 kits) of blue ling, which was not expected at these depths in these quantities.

    Evaluation and improvement of shellfish dredge design and fishing effort in relation to technical conservation measures and environmental impact: ECODREDGE FAIR CT98-4465;

    This file provides access to the reports produced during the ECODREDGE project. This project systematically examines the bivalve dredging process and its physiological and ecological consequences. The literature on ecology and population dynamics of the target species, dredge design and fisheries and the environmental effects of dredging and selectivity of dredging is reviewed. A programme of experimental work, both laboratory and field studies is described in scallop and clam dredge fisheries in European waters; scallop species (UK, France) Pecten maximus, Aequipecten opercularis, clam species (Italy; N. Adriatic) Chamelea gallina, clam species (Portugal) Spisula solida, Donax trunculus, Callista chione. Selectivity measures and dredge design are examined for their consequences in terms of environmental effects. Studies included physical, chemical and biological effects both at individual and community level, and selectivity of dredging. These studies include the use of instrumentation and modelling to describe physical effects and behavioural observations, stress and damage indices, both acute and chronic, to describe environmental effects.In the discussion measurement of environmental effects and selectivity are discussed along with the environmental effects of selectivity parameters, dredge designs and responses to fishing effort. The results are discussed in the context of dredge fishery management. - “(Keywords: scallop, clam, environmental impact, selectivity)”.
