New Study Details Path to Reducing Bycatch and Fishing Responsibly
Large knowledge gaps regarding the use of FADs still exist, and this uncertainty is hindering management decision-making on the use of FADs by purse seiners.
The ISSF Bycatch Project sponsored a study to look at the post release survival rates of juvenile silky sharks incidentally captured in purse seine nets when fishing for tuna around drifting fish aggregating devices (FADs)
