Dataset identification

Title of datasetMEP-NSW Gillnet
Narrative summary of datasetThe main purpose of this sampling was to study the effects on fish near the monopiles in the OWEZ windpark. A multi-mesh gillnet is used, with six mesh sizes. Each mesh size forms a single panel of 6,7 meters in width. Every mesh-size panel occurs twice in each net, thus a complete net consists of 12 panels and has a length of about 80 meters.
Summary of processing methodologyThe multi-mesh gillnet used has a height of 3.7 m. At low tidal currents, the height of the net was assumed to be 3 m from the seabed
