The collection of significantly smaller individuals of 6 fish species, Leucoraja spp., silver hake (Merluccius bilinearis), longhorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus octodecemspinosus), windowpane (Scophthalmus aquosus), red hake (Urophycis chuss), and ocean pout (Zoarces americanus), indicated that the beam trawl was more efficient than the bottom trawl at collecting juveniles (or younger age classes, <2 years old) for some taxa.
"In the combined take of Silver Hake, Merluccius bilinearis; Atlantic Mackerel, Scomber scombrus; and Atlantic Herring, Clupea harengus; how many tons would have been harvested each year within the northwest Atlantic ecosystem during 1988-92 if the fishery had been managed sustainably?"
