Background information and definitions
Gill netting and seine netting provide a potential tool for localised population reduction of invasive gobies. Studies have shown this to be effective for other fish species. For example, a before-and-after study in the UK found repeated removal of topmouth gudgeon Pseudorasbora parva by seine netting reduced pond and lake populations (Britton et al. 2010).
