Background information and definitions
Marine and freshwater mammals may be attracted to aquaculture systems to feed and can subsequently become entangled in gear. Modifications to aquaculture gear, such as using stiffened or rigid materials, may reduce the risk of entanglement. This may also reduce mammal predation on fish stocks thereby reducing human-wildlife conflict.
