    At its 2014 meeting, WG-FSA recommended that details of fishing gear used in trawl surveys (in addition to longline research) should be submitted to the CCAMLR fishing gear ‘library’ (SC-CAMLR-XXXIII p 3.76). This paper provides detailed diagrams of the FP-120 net which has been used for sampling demersal fishes on the UK groundfish survey in CCAMLR subarea 48.3 since 1991.
