Discard Valves

Project

Discard Valves

This project aims to develop a discard valve system that can be used to measure more accurate discard amounts on board. It solves the problem of negative discard estimates when total catches are badly estimated. The development of such a system will follow a design process based on existing examples and practical expertise. The deliverables would result in a more efficient discard monitoring. Results will be disseminated in the scientific community and in the fishing industry.
