    Daylight setting is allowed in Subarea 48.4 and stringent mitigation measures have meant to date no bird mortalities have been recorded. Due to frequent storms vessels have been requesting the option to be able to set during daylight in Subarea 48.3 for safety reasons.  Recurrent cetacean presence also hampers fishing activities and the opportunity to daylight set would be beneficial as an avoidance technique. This paper proposes a 10 day trial (per vessel) of daylight setting between 1st July and 15th August (when there is the least bird activity).
