I am fairly sure that electric fishing of any kind is banned in the E.U. My knowledge is based on a recent request by Holland to allow use of an electric beam trawl to fish for flatfish. This request was reviewed by an expert panel; that panel is a good source for contacts on the use of electricity in marine fishing, especially Bob Van Marlen and Hans Polet.  The conclusions of that panel were reviewed by the ICES Working Group on Fishing Technology and Fish Behaviour at its annual meeting in April. See: http://www.ices.dk/reports/FTC/2006/WGFTFB06.pdf, section 4.1 for the official request, panel members and comments.

You can view a final report of a project that briefly tested an electric dredge to fish for sea scallop Placopecten magellanicus that I was part of at: http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/dmf/programsandprojects/conseng/scallop_dredge_report.pdf. Our results were limited, but there did seem to be some positive results.

Regards,

Mike

Dear Members,
I am looking for information on using electricity as a commercial fishing method in marine systems (not as a stock assessment method in freshwaters). I have picked up bits and pieces of information, but nothing too concrete. My specific interest is with respect to shellfish, but information has been so sparse that anything would be appreciated.
As well as practicalities of the method, if anyone has any insight with respect to the legality of it in European waters I'd appreciate it.
Regards,
