Literature in this section examines broad-scale patterns in the implementation of bycatch mitigation technologies and the effectiveness of these in reducing quantities of bycatch. For example, Favaro and Côté (2015) use meta-analysis to consider whether bycatch reduction devices in longline fisheries reduce capture of sharks and rays. Godin et al. (2012) use meta-analysis to weigh the effect of circle hooks on shark catchability and at-vessel mortality rates in longlines fisheries and Caneco et al. (2014) use integrated analysis of combined datasets representing different fisheries to assess interaction rates of various gear configurations.
