ObjectivesSELTRA sorting box Selectivity trial. With the new CFP's objective of reducing or eliminating unwanted bycatch in commercial fisheries within European waters a series of national trials are planned which will help achieve this objective. 10 days of fishing trials using a SELTRA equipped trawl and 300m SMP equipped trawl are planned and it is intended to operate this gear from the MFV Mianda (DA70). The trial is designed as a selectivity experiment using the paired trawl selectivity method (40mm mesh size).
