Access from EThOS:
Studies investigating the survival of fish escaping from towed fishing gears have demonstrated a significant mortality. The aim of this thesis was to address criticisms of these studies and establish whether the estimates of escape mortality were biased. This critical analysis focused on the work by Fisheries Research Services, as they were considered to have developed benchmark techniques in this field.
