Is electrical pulse trawling a good alternative to the beam trawl?

Rijnsdorp, A.D.; Bos, O.G.


Traditional beam trawling and pulse trawling are two different techniques to catch sole and other (flat)fish. Beam trawling uses tickler chains, whereas pulse fishing uses electrical instead of mechanical stimulation. This video explains the conclusions of the in-depth scientific research into the effects and benefits of pulse trawling.
