Lowestoft Laboratory Leaflet No. 69 (1991) by E.C.E.
Potter and M.G. Pawson entitled "Gill netting"
contains references to work by these authors and
others in evaluating monofilament and multifilament
netting materials in terms of effectiveness and
efficiency.  The authors state that "it is usually
thought that larger fish are more likely to become
entangled in multifilament nets than in monofilament
nets because of the softer texture of the twine".
However, the results of trials referred to by Stewart
(1987) and MacMullen (1983) seem to be inconclusive,
in that the former found greater incidence of tangling
of cod by multifilament nets whilst the latter found
that hake were more likely to become tangled in
monofilament nets.
