Abstract of Publication

Allison, E.H., A. Davies, B.P. Ngatunga, and A.B. Thompson. 1994. A method for studying pelagic fish communities in deep lakes using drifting gillnets. Fisheries Research 20 (1): 87-91.  

A method is described for fishing a 'fleet' of multi-mesh survey gillnets at different depths simultaneously. The system is particularly suited for surveying pelagic fish communities in deep lakes, and is currently being used to sample pelagic fish populations in Lake Malawi/Niassa.
