Modelling the effects of electrical pulse stimulation on marine fishes and invertebrates We study the effects of electrical pulse stimulation on various marine organisms in the context of electric pulse bottom trawl fisheries. Discovering the vulnerability of benthic ecosystems in European waters BENTHIS studies the impacts of fishing on benthic ecosystems and will provide the science base to assess the impact of current fishing practices. Benthic Ecosystem Fisheries Impact Study (BENTHIS) BENTHIS is a pan-European research project to study the impact of bottom trawling on the sea bed and all the animals living on or in the seabed. Effort allocation of mixed fisheries on tuna’s and small pelagics with juvenile tuna by-catch and their interaction with FAD's (BESTTuna subproject 2a) This subproject identifies long term strategies and short term tactics of fishers in placing and utilising FADs, as well as the long term consequences... Movement and habitat selection of juvenile tuna in relation to Fish Aggregating Devices and ocean productivity (BESTTuna subproject 2b) The objective of this study is to conduct a (agent based) model analysis of the consequences of (anchored) FAD use on juvenile tuna populations.
