Other Uses for Flexi-Panel

We have been able to demonstrate very good results using the Flexi-panel as a device to reduce the by-catch of unwanted species in trawl nets.

Trials were carried out on Blue Whiting trawls in the Faroe Islands by the Faroese Fisheries Laboratory resulted in a 95% reduction in by-catch of Cod and Pollock. The Flexi-Panel was then used as standard equipment in all Faroese Blue Whiting trawl nets. Research and development work is ongoing in Mackerel trawl nets.

More and more emphasis is now being placed on selective fishing methods, catching the target fish and letting the rest go. This is exactly what the Flexi-Panel does.
