Fishing Focus – Summer 2013, Issue 30

Defra and the Marine Management Organisation have published the Summer 2013, issue 30 of the Fishing Focus newsletter.  Included in this issue is an update on the Cefas project to minimise catches of unwanted fish in the northwest English Nephrops trawl fishery.  This project was initiated by skippers from Whitehaven and Maryport who asked for help to improve their trawl design to avoid discards.  The newsletter may be downloaded via this link.
