Using acoustically visible gillnets to reduce bycatch of harbor porpoises

To reduce bycatch of harbor porpoises in gillnets, an „acoustically visible“ gillnet (“pearl net”) was developed. Within this projects, the behavioral reactions of harbor porpoises to the modified gillnet will be evaluated.

HyFiVe - Hydrography on Fishing Vessels

In cooperation with the Leibnitz Institute for Baltic Sea Research and Hensel Elektronik GmbH, we are working on the development of an innovative system for use on fishing vessels for the autonomous acquisition, transmission and evaluation of hydrographic measurement data for interdisciplinary research.

MiniSeine – a small Danish seine for German coastal fishing

We are trying to reduce the environmental impact of fishing gear - including the impact of towed gear on the seabed. The Danish seine is ideal for this, as it also saves fuel and makes the catch inaccessible to grey seals. However, this device must be miniaturised for use on small coastal fishing vessels - we are developing and testing such a MiniSeine in this project together with the fishery.

Reduction of plastic waste from the brown shrimp fishery through gear modifications (DRopS)

Um das Durchscheuern der Unterblätter von Baumkurrennetzen am Meeresboden zu verringern, werden dort häufig Polyethylenseile angebracht. Diese so genannten Dolly Ropes werden nach kürzester Zeit auf See als Plastikmüll freigesetzt.
