  • Description:
    "In 1990, Congressional amendments to the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act required the Secretary of Commerce to establish a program to assess the impact on fishery resources of incidental harvest by the shrimp trawl fishery under the jurisdiction of the South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Councils. In response to this requirement, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Southeast Region developed a research requirements document (NMFS, 1991), and a research plan was developed by the Gulf and South Atlantic Fisheries Development Foundation (GSAFDF, 1992), addressing the shrimp trawl bycatch problem. One of the objectives of the plan is to identify, develop, and evaluate gear (bycatch reduction devices, BRDs), non-gear and tactical fishing options for reducing bycatch"--Executive summary, paragraph 1.
