Scientific Assessment of Novel Fishing System asse
Rigorous Scientific Assessment of a novel fishing system with a view to assessing its suitability and environmental effects This project will study the potential of fishing for razorclams using electric current as an alternative to dredging, which has a significant environmental impact on the sea bed. Scientific sampling and analysis of animal communities on the sea bed will allow objective assessments of any impacts. The aim is to identify a viable technique for harvesting currently under used razorclam stocks in a sustainable manner. Management plans will be devised such that the stocks are managed in a sustainable manner and the product is of a high quality, generating good returns for local communities.
