Gear types?

The GEARNET project has been funded to focus on gear conservation engineering efforts that relate to targeting groundfish species of any kind. As such, we are open to working with all gear types that are used to target groundfish species. For example:

  • Trawl gear
  • Gillnet gear
  • Hook gear (Longline or jig)

17 projects funded in 2011!
