Dear list members,

first of all I wish to thank all those who have responded (privately or
on-list) to my survey on VIDEO OF FISHING GEAR ON THE BOTTOM for
educational purposes, and have passed on some valuable info.

Please find below a summary of the replies, plus a list of web links that I
have found searching through Google (including photo galleries and other
My search hasn't ended yet, but I think this can be a good starting point.
Hope that others will find this survey useful.

The one film I had the opportunity to watch was shot by a group out of Woods
Hole that is working on new new technology and such. It was very well filmed,
clear and easy to see how they work and how fish behavior can be used to
reduce bycatch.
Someone at Sea Grant in Mass. or NMFS, or Greg Morris may know the persons
involved and could steer you there.
Try the Live Lobster Cam at:
Ask the folks who organize it if they have some intersting archived footage.
The Resource Assessment and Conservation Engineering (RACE) Division at
the Alaska Fisheries Science Centre (NMFS-NOAA) provides streaming video
of their survey gear (deployment and underwater operation). Very well done.
As for web-based sources, I recommend visiting The Resource Assessment
and Conservation Engineering (RACE) Division at the Alaska Fisheries
Science Centre (NMFS-NOAA). Their site provides excellent streaming
video of their survey gear (deployment and underwater operation). Click
on "Field Videos" in the right hand column.
I would suggest contacting Whit Sheard at the Ocean Conservancy
Anchorage office. His email is [log in to unmask]

I have otter trawl video tape--before and after--California halibut fishing.
However. there are no markers to indicate impacts to the bottom which are
negligible. There are fewer large halibut, but Dungeness crab, octopus, etc.

Possibly I can provide MIT with a copy or two. The tape was produced by
California Sea Grant during experiments by the California Depat. of Fish
and Game.
Approx. 1 hour.
Look at this website and see if you are interested. If you contact
Waldo he might be able to send you some photos and/or videos.

We are in the process of compiling a list of appropriate videos for you. I
would like to confirm that you are able to use North American VHS-format
videos in Italy and to inform you that there will be a nominal fee to
offset our costs of providing them to you.

We have a number of links in the website to video clips of cetacean bycatch
& fishing gear issues, some are carried as clip downloads, and others link
to other web sites;
you might like to try the following links
<> -
Efforts to Reduce Cetacean Bycatch and Entanglement
<> has links to each of the following
- scroll down that page and you will find the links listed below at the end
of that page - please note that these are very large files and will take
along time to download via a dial up ISP.
  Further links carried in our web site got to
- Educational Video for Pelagic Longline Operators
- The University of Georgia Marine Extension Service - Research videos at
reasonable cost.
- Australian aquaculture & bycatch reduction videos
- Great Barrier Reef Seabed Biodiversity Project
- scroll to the end of this page - a video of dolphin bycatch in the
Eastern tropical Pacific is available.
- Some very useful videos (large file downloads) regarding seabird bycatch
reduction - Alaskan longline - but has e-mail links to specific NOAA / NMFS
contacts that may be able to supply you with further information.

The Fisheries Research Services in Aberdeen has a long history of research
and development in fishing gears, with lots of video footage. You can order
these videos:
I can't help with vidoe footage of gear on the bottom, but if you look at
my web page ( and click on the tab 'educational materials'
you will be brought to a streamed video concerning fishing knoweldge as
practiced on the west coast of Canada. The video that relates to fihsing
is called "Chasing the fish."
We have some mpeg video files taken from a fishing trawl at our website The cameras are actually located inside an underwater
tagging equipment inside the trawl. Let me know if need more files, or more

We have a CD with some footage of bottom trawling in action. It's in
amongst video of deep sea coral, so you may need to do a little editing.
I'll put a copy in the mail for you to the address below, on the
understanding that it is only for educational purposes.
The Seafish Industry Authority (Edinburgh or Hull, UK) has an excellent
library of video material.
Maybe one of the SPC Traing Videos might be helpful:
A list of other videos available in our Library is attached.
