Cefas: GB-Lowestoft: Cefas ITT Discard Survival of Sea Bass

  Cefas is using Delta eSourcing to run this tender exercise

Notice Summary
Title: GB-Lowestoft: Cefas ITT Discard Survival of Sea Bass
Notice type: Competitive Contract Notice
Authority: Cefas
Nature of contract: Services
Procedure: Not applicable
Short Description: The primary objective of this project is to estimate survival rate of discarded sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) caught in UK fisheries. The information on sea bass discard survival may be used to supplement management advice, in particular in constructing Discard Plans and evidencing applications for exemptions to the Landing Obligation (LO) for sea bass under the high survival provision. The trials will take place between August 2018 and December 2018. The work will involve a maximum of 14 days of fishing under charter per vessel/gear type. The study will involve the capture of sea bass under normal commercial trawl and gill net practices to record the condition and health state of individual bass. Any live bass will be assessed and (if deemed likely to survive) tagged with electronic tags and released back to sea to help provide evidence of post discard survival. The survey will require two scientists to be onboard the vessel with approximately two metre square clear deck space to carry out scientific procedures during fishing operations.
