Electronic fishing logbook, the OLRAC DDL

24 de May, 2021 Delasmop

Delasmop´s project will propose best fishing procedures and handling of elasmobranchs, bycatch of crustacean bottom-trawl fisheries.
To that end, sampling will occur during scientific cruises and comercial trips off the South and Southwest coasts of Portugal, where we will insert information into an electronic logbook, the OLRAC DDL, related to fishing procedures as haul duration, depth, and deep-sea elasmobranchs handling practices. The information obtained will be integrated into a protocol that will be delivered to relevant stakeholders containing procedures to decrease the bycatch of deep-sea elasmobranchs while increasing their survival in crustacean bottom-trawl fisheries.
