SCALLOP POTTING WITH FISHTEK MARINE

Thursday, February 15
10:00 AM  11:00 AM
Free ZOOM Lecture
Don’t miss this online lecture about this innovative low impact technique to harvest scallops without traditional damaging dredging.
Fishtek’s website describes their work:
Scientists at Fishtek Marine have documented for the first time that scallops can be attracted into static fishing gear using LED lights. With the recent publication of our scientific paper describing these novel findings we present the fishing industry with the opportunity for the development of a new, low impact method of fishing for scallops.
Wild caught scallops are traditionally caught using dredges and trawls or hand sourced by divers. The UK hand-dived scallop fishery represents <2% of total landed weight nationally whereas dredge caught scallops account for 95% of scallop landings (Cappell et al., 2018).
