2015 Report on the impacts of “ghost fishing” via derelict fishing gear.
  • Published Date:
Filetype[PDF-1.61 MB]

  • Description:
    This report is a summary of the current scientific knowledge of ghost fishing, the derelict fishing gear that contribute to it, the species mortalities, and the economic losses to certain fisheries due to ghost fishing mortalities. Gaps in knowledge are identified, and suggestions for the prevention and mitigation of DFG and possible future research foci are presented here within the framework of prevention, removal, and education as means of reducing ghost fishing. These three focus areas, however, should be considered together as a multi-pronged approach toward that goal.
