Scraping the bottom: Are towed fishing gears a threat to benthic biodiversity?



Scraping the bottom: Are towed fishing gears a threat to benthic biodiversity?



Oceanis 24(4): 259-270



Bottom fishing activities are probably the most important source of anthropogenic physical disturbance to benthic habitats and communities. As such, they have great potential to permanently alter benthic community structure and reduce habitat complexity. This may have negative effects on populations of commercially important species. Damage of hard substrata that are important for the attachment of certain sessile species will lead to permanent habitat changes.
