This site, will be used to update all bycatch reduction research efforts. At present we are close to having the nested cylinder bycatch reduction device certified for use during commercial shrimp trawling. Additionally, we are working on techniques to reduce shark bycatch.
Bycatch in world commercial fisheries is one of the most important problems facing fisheries managers today. The capture of unwanted species during commercial fishing can result in significant impacts on populations of marine organisms and on marine ecosystems. The research described in these pages attempts to address these issues and is ongoing at Parsons Consulting LLC and the University of Mississippi.
