Concern over the ability of synthetic nets and traps to continue fishing after they are lost, and the resulting additional mortality of target and non-target species, lead to an international project to quantify the catching capacity of such gears in commercial fishing situations. This special section of Fisheries Research presents eight case study investigations, ranging from gill nets set for hake in coastal waters off Portugal, to traps set for red king crabs in deep water off Norway.
