www.bycatch.org:  A Clearinghouse of Resources on Bycatch Mitigation

 

The Consortium for Wildlife Bycatch Reduction is excited to announce the
launch of our new, expanded website: www.bycatch.org.  

 

The Consortium for Wildlife Bycatch Reduction is a science-industry
partnership that consists of the New England Aquarium, Blue Water
Fishermen's Association, Duke University, Maine Lobstermen's
Association, and University of New Hampshire.  The Consortium supports
collaborative research between scientists and the fishing industry to
identify practical bycatch reduction solutions for threatened or
endangered species.  

 

The website features:

 

*         A searchable database of references and summaries from bycatch
reduction studies

*         Search by a species of interest, fishing gear, or mitigation
technique and view related studies and their effectiveness for reducing
bycatch and maintaining target catch

*         Bycatch research and resources

*         Bycatch related news and events

 

We hope you will find this website useful,

 

Kate McClellan
