Background information and definitions
Reducing the duration of time that fishing gear is in the water (‘soak time’) may reduce the risk of entanglements and unwanted catch (‘bycatch’) of marine and freshwater mammals. This may include reducing the amount of time that gear is used for active fishing, as well as avoiding leaving static gear in place when not being fished, e.g. to store gear or reserve a fishing patch.
