DESCRIPTION OF REQUIREMENT:

The purpose of this bid solicitation is to fill critical knowledge gaps to support decision-making on critical conservation issues associated with redfish stocks.

In the very likely event of a re-opening of commercial redfish fisheries, essential knowledge gaps to support decision-making on critical conservation issues need to be addressed. The project aims to develop and test a selective pelagic trawl in order to propose this alternative to fishermen exploiting redfish by bottom trawl. Innovative modifications to trawl will be proposed, tested, and optimized to increase selectivity, reduce bycatches, and avoid contact between fishing gear and seabed. The results will be used to assess trawl characteristics and fishing conditions allowing the capture of commercial size redfish while minimizing incidental catches of young individuals, which are currently highly abundant, as well as other species present in the target species habitat.

Please see the attached RFP for additional information.
