SUMARiS survival dataset



In the North East Atlantic, skates (Rajidae) are primarily caught as a byproduct in otter- and beam-trawl fisheries and also targeted, with lower effort, with gill- and trammel nets. In the context of a potential "high survival" exemption on the European Landing Obligation (LO), discard survival was quantified for four species caught in North Sea and English Channel: thornback (Raja clavata), blonde (Raja brachyura), spotted (Raja montagui) and undulate (Raja undulata) skates. The SUMARiS survival dataset contains all relevant (meta)data to quantify and explore at-vessel and delayed survival for these four species.,The SUMARiS survival dataset contains trip (TR), haul (HL) and survival data (ST) of 31 commercial fishing trips for four species of skate.
