Background Discards refer to the practice of dumping overboard dead unwanted fish that are accidentally caught as by-catch during commercial fishing practices. Most conventional fishing operations produce discards (ranging from between 2 and 10% for long-line methods and increasing by as much as 90% for trawling systems). New measures within the Common Fi ...
