Background information and definitions
Limiting the length of fishing gear, such as ropes, lines, or nets, in an area may reduce the risk of entanglements and unwanted catch (‘bycatch’) of marine and freshwater mammals. This could involve using shorter ropes or lines, or using multiple pots, traps or nets on each line.
