Report of Gear Trials by Tropical Shrimp Trawling Project

The Fisheries Division conducted a second programme of gear trials over the period 21 May – 1 June 2007. The first such exercise was conducted over the period 13 – 25 November 2006. This was one of the project activities for Trinidad and Tobago under the FAO global Project EP/GLO/201/GEF “Reduction of Environmental Impact from Tropical Shrimp Trawling, through the Implementation of Bycatch Reduction Technologies and Change of Management”. These gear trials involved the testing/demonstration of bycatch reduction devices (BRDs) and/or modified trawl gear aimed at reducing the level of discards of bycatch caught in the shrimp trawl fishery.
