Abstract

Discards represent one of the most important issues within current commercial fishing. It occurs for a range of reasons and
is influenced by an even more complex array of factors. We address this issue by examining the data collected within the
Danish discard observer program and describe the factors that influence discarding within the Danish Kattegat demersal
fleet over the period 1997 to 2008. Generalised additive models were used to assess how discards of the 3 main target
species, Norway lobster, cod and plaice, and their subcomponents (under and over minimum landings size) are influenced
by important factors and their potential relevance to management. Our results show that discards are influenced by a range
of different factors that are different for each species and portion of discards. We argue that knowledge about the factors
influential to discarding and their use in relation to potential mitigation measures are essential for future fisheries
management strategies.
