Hake Trawl Research

CapMarine has an active observer programme with the South African Deep Sea Trawling Industry Association (SADSTIA). We deploy specially trained observers to collect scientific information on hake and trawl bycatch. One of our projects specifically is aimed at separating the two hake species in commercial catches to verify and update the two-species splitting algorithm used in the assessment of Cape hake stocks. Another project includes observing the seabird-warp interactions and quantifying the number of seabird mortalities.
