Item Identification

Title: Fisheries Conservation Engineering Videos
Status: Completed

The NOAA, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, Mississippi Laboratories, Harvesting Systems Unit conducts research to develop gear modifications to mitigate bycatch in fisheries. The video library contains underwater and surface video footage obtained during fisheries dependent and fisheries independent conservation engineering research conducted since 1986. The library includes footage of research conducted in commercial and recreational fisheries including: hook and line, longline, trawl, gill net, and pot fisheries. The footage is contained on VHS, DVD, Hi-8 and 8mm, digital videotapes, and mp4 video files. In addition, the library contains images obtained from DIDSON and ARIS sonars.


To obtain video observations of fishing gear and animal behavior during fishing gear conservation engineering research.
