Reducing by-catch

Reducing by-catch

The SLED (Sea Lion Exclusion Device) is designed to reduce the number of marine mammals such as seals and sea lions that are trapped in the trawl nets of squid-fishing boats. The device allows sea lions to escape through the top hatch, while squid pass through a metal grid and get caught at the end of the net.
