Visual alerts for gillnets - other

'Visual alerts for gillnets - other' captures means of improving the visibility of nets, other than by acoustic or illumination methods. Examples include net colour, reflective net elements, high contrast and patterned nets.

There is limited research into the application of these techniques in tuna fisheries; results from other fisheries have been collected, particularly for seabirds.
