WWF (2014) 2014 Smart Gear Grand Prize Winner +  Runner ups - includes details on Seabird Saver and Super Polyshark
Abstract

Summaries of the four prize winners are provided including: 1. Air powered sampling trawl reduces bycatch in Purse Seine Fisheries by identifying if the fish caught in the seine are the targeted species or not. If not, the purse is opened to release the unwanted species. 2. FRESWIND is a flatfish bycatch reduction device which involves two lateral escape windows that are mounted in front of the cod-end trawl net. 3. Time release repellent to control shark bycatch - Super Polyshark uses time-released pellets that, when dissolved in water, create an odor that repels sharks. 4. Seabird Saver - uses lasers and noise to deter seabirds
