English term or phrase:set and lift times
The fish community in the vicinity of the proposed port was assessed by netting surveys and interviews with local fisherman. Experimental netting (gill nets consisting of knotted monofilament mesh size ranging from 3.8 to 12.7 cm measuring 45.7 m in length and 1.8 m in height) was conducted in a variety of locations in the vicinity of the proposed pier in April and July 2006 (Figure 2.6.1). Experimental nets were used so that it was possible to collect fish of various sizes and age classes. For each net, ***set and lift times*** were recorded, as well as the water depth in which the net was set and the bottom substrate characteristics in the area.
When a net was lifted from the water all fish were identified, enumerated and measured (length and weight). Those species deemed to be potential “sentinel” species, or those from which tissues were collected for contaminant characterization were retained for further processing, whereas all others were released back into the harbour or given to the local residents.
