Training on Fabrication of Square Mesh Cod End

updated on : 0000-00-00

Large scale destruction of young ones of fishes, either as by-catch in trawl nets or through intentional catch, is considered as one of the major reasons for sharp decline of marine fish catch from our seas. Since trawl net is a non-selective fishing gear it is difficult to avoid juveniles from the catch completely, replica watches but we can certainly reduce their percentage in the catch through some modifications in the fishing net, especially in the cod end. Usage of square mesh cod ends in trawl nets instead of diamond mesh cod ends has proved to be a successful measure for reducing the by-catch of juveniles in trawl nets to a great extent. Hence with an aim to conserve our marine resources, NETFISH is popularizing the use of square mesh cod ends among fishers through regular awareness classes and trainings. The fishers, mainly the net menders were imparted the technology of fabrication of square mesh cod ends, by organizing training programmes at major harbours.
