Document Type: Monograph
This report provides firstly with factual information in the form of an insight into the operation of a Danish sandeel fishery, an account of the controls imposed on a sandeel fishery and a description of local Scottish sandeel fisheries. Secondly, the authors give an objective assessment of interactions of these sandeel fisheries with other fisheries and with predators and also the relationship between sandeels and salmon. Finally, the authors consider the future management of the sandeel fisheries. They refer in their penultimate sentence to the proposal by the European Commission to impose precautionary TACs upon the sandeel fisheries and refer to this being an important step.
