Fishery Improvement Projects
All targeted fishing for crab is undertaken with pots or creels set in ‘strings’ of 25-100. The pots are composed of a metal frame supporting a wide mesh netting. Entrances are designed mainly as so called “soft-eyes” which consists of a flap of netting which the crab can push upwards as it enters the pot and which then closes. Some pots may have hard eye tope entrances and may have a double chamber. However such variations are exceptions in the targeted crab fishery and are more likely to be used locally in the lobster fishery. Gear is baited with a variety of fish species and is soaked for 24-72hrs although exceptionally, during for example poor weather, they may be soaked for longer periods of time.
The Celtic Sea Herring Management Advisory Committee (CSHMAC) is implementing a Fishery Improvement Project for Celtic Sea Herring. CSHMAC is working with The Marine Institute (Ireland’s fisheries scientific body) on a rebuilding plan. The plan is being developed over the summer of 2018 and will be presented to the Pelagic Advisory Council in October.
