Bottom trawling is a diversified fishing method which uses numerous
types of gear designs, sizes, rigging and operational methods.
Therefore, impact on the bottom habitat will differ among the
various bottom trawl fisheries and also to a large extent depend on
the bottom conditions in the area fished. This document describes
the basic principles that can be used to reduce the impact of
trawling, some of which are already developed as practical
solutions and implemented in commercial fisheries. Overall,
however, there are presently few examples of low bottom-impact
trawl gears in use in commercial fisheries. These basic mitigation
measures aim at reducing pressure on the bottom of various trawl
components and minimizing the impacted area while trawling.
