Species fished using a bottom trawl are not necessarily present in the first few meters from the bottom. Therefore fishing practices can be adapted to reduce the impact and cost of bottom trawling. The objective of this project is to design a commercial-scale, three-level trawl to document the vertical position of Northern shrimp and bycatch species.
