Study Type: 

Field study in the wild

Location: 

Iceland

Target catch: 

Large bait decreased haddock catch and caught more large species except ling. Larger hooks lowered catch efficiency but had minimal effect in size selectivity

Effect on target catch: 

Large bait increased catch of large fish of all target species except for ling, and reduce catch of haddock. Increasing hook size decreased capture efficiency for all target fish species.Large bait decreased catch of small fish
