Discards in der deutschen Seelachsfischerei

  title={Discards in der deutschen Seelachsfischerei},
  author={Wolfgang Weber},
The saithe fishery in the Northern North Sea includes unused by-catches, that usually represent 6.1 % of the total catch. Although this relates clearly to single to species and year classes this fishery is comparatively “clean”. If such catches were better used, i.e. if the marketable fish of legal length were also landed, one could certify that the saithe fishery could be carried out without ecological concern.
