Definition from Baltijas Vides forums/
Piezveja ir visa jūras radība, kas nav zvejas mērķsuga. Piezveja biežāk notiek gadījumos, kad netiek izmantoti selektīvie zvejas rīki. Par piezvejas upuriem visbiežāk kļūst jūras zīdītāji - pelēkie un pogainie roņi, kā arī putni – visbiežāk nirējpīles. [...] + Tomēr citas sugas, kā, piemēram, Stellera pūkpīle (Polysticta stelleri), ir ļoti retas un stingri aizsargājamas. Tām katra piezvejā nonākusi pīle ir kā maza traģēdija visai vēl atlikušajai populācijai.

Example sentence(s):
  • EN by-catch, bycatch Definition: that part of the catch which is not the targeted species but which may be retained for sale FR: prises accessoires; capture accessoire DE: Beifänge LV: piezveja - Eurovoc, 4.2  
  • Daudzos gadījumos ir noteikts minimālais procentuālais piezvejas apjoms no kopējās nozvejas, kuru ir atļauts paturēt uz kuģa, jo no nejaušas piezvejas pilnībā izvairīties nav iespējams. - Valsts zivsaimniecības pārvalde
