Performance of a long lasting shark repellent bait for elasmobranch bycatch reduction during commercial pelagic longline fishing

  title={Performance of a long lasting shark repellent bait for elasmobranch bycatch reduction during commercial pelagic longline fishing},
  author={Patrick Hays Rice and Brian Alan DeSanti and Eric M. Stroud},
The goal of the current study is the development of a long lasting shark repellent bait to reduce elasmobranch bycatch during commercial pelagic longline (PLL) fishing. Currently, twelve preliminary at-sea trials have been completed, which have identified a candidate long lasting and effective shark repellent bait for further experimental at-sea replication. The twelve preliminary sets involved deploying different formulas (i.e. variations in the molecular weights 16Kmw, 8K mw and 6K mw) of the…

Analysis of variance indicated significant catch rate differences among quarters for silky, dusky, night, blue, oceanic whitetip, sandbar, and shortfin mako sharks, and Bootstrap methods were used to generate yearly mean catch rates.

Despite widespread recognition of shark bycatch issues (Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] 1999; FAO 2010), few mitigation actions have been established, and there are no clear guidelines about
Use of Catenary Geometry to Estimate Hook Depth during Near-Surface Pelagic Longline Fishing: Theory versus Practice
Abstract Management and conservation of many highly migratory fish species are based on population assessments that rely heavily on catch and effort data from the pelagic longline fishing industry.
Rapid worldwide depletion of predatory fish communities
The analysis suggests that management based on recent data alone may be misleading, and provides minimum estimates for unexploited communities, which could serve as the 'missing baseline' needed for future restoration efforts.
