Bangor University: World-wide Trawling Study Advances Knowledge on Trawling's Global Impact
A world-wide study of the impacts of bottom trawling has found that seabeds are in good health where trawl fisheries are sustainably managed.
The first study of its kind, by Bangor University with collaborating research institutes, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS w/c 3.1.22) builds on recent international collaboration. It brings together data from 24 large marine regions around the world to establish a relationship between distribution and intensity of trawling activities and the health of seafloor communities.
