Definition from Fisheries Glossary:
Part of a catch of a fishing unit taken incidentally in addition to the target species towards which fishing effort is directed.

  • The scale of this mortality is such that bycatch in some fisheries may affect the structure and function of marine systems at the population, community and ecosystem levels. Greenpeace
  • The standard mandates minimizing bycatch to the extent practicable and minimizing mortality of unavoidable bycatch. Louisiana Fisheries

παρεμπίπτοντα αλιεύματα


Definition from greenpeace:
Ανάμεσά τους, εκτός
από ψάρια, βρίσκονται δελφίνια, θαλάσσιες
χελώνες, καρχαρίες, θαλασσοπούλια. Πολλά
από αυτά κινδυνεύουν με εξαφάνιση, και
αφού αλιευθούν ξαναρίχνονται στη θάλασσα
νεκρά ή χωρίς ελπίδα επιβίωσης. Αυτά είναι
τα λεγόμενα παρεμπίπτοντα αλιεύματα
(bycatch).

Διεθνώς, τα παρεμπίπτοντα αλιεύματα αποτελούν το ένα τέταρτο του συνόλου των αλιευμάτων. - greenpeace
