Presentation - Context
- French Good Practices Guide
- Increasing of the restocking part until 60 % for 2013
Objectives :
- Decrease mortality in catches
- Decrease injuries made by fishing gear
Increase glass eels quality
Nets description :
Experimental net
Conventional net
Method
- Gear on each side of the vessel
- The entire catch is placed in oxygenated pockets
- 10 strokes by fishing campaign
- Vessel speed : 4 knots (8km/h)
- Duration of scoop net strokes = 10 min
- Catches located in a tank of water at 5 ‰ salinity for about 12 h
10 fishing campaign planned,
performed 7 = 70 scoop net strokes,
140 catches analyzed

Conclusion
Encouraging results:
Seems to increase glass eel quality in catches
Prospects
- First approach in system improvement
- Results brings elements to adapt guide of good practices
- Proposing to adapt to other kind of gear
