    Sebastian presented some slides about the utility of the reflex method. He explained that just like for humans, capacity to respond to neurological stimuli may be a useful tool to gauge an organism’s condition and ideally probability of survival. It has been a validated concept for many different taxa. Sebastian presented in video and pictures, the candidate reflexes that have been identified and deemed suitable for plaice and sole. Forty plaice and sole across the full length spectrum found in the beam trawl fishery were tested, in both lab and field environments. Some dab have been tested, but more fish were collected to confirm the suitability of nine candidate reflexes.
