  • Description:
    Experimental fishing permits were issued to the F/V Harvester and Zarana for set-netting groundfish during the period 1 May to 31 October 1983. These permits were issued to determine whether submerged gill nets are a suitable gear type for harvesting groundfish, and secondly, to determine the impact of such gear on other resources as well as other resource users. Observers were placed on both vessels to fulfill these objectives. To examine differences among areas, the Harvester was assigned to Westport, Washington, whereas the Zarana operated out of Neah Bay, Washington. The purpose of this report is to describe this fishery and to provide catch information for assessing the impact of set-net gear.
