Two innovative grid systems were experimentally tested in the North Sea- brown shrimp fishery. The systems were proposed to supplement codend selectivity, as a strategy to reduce the wide selection ranges provided by standard gears. Results show promising results of the concepts tested, as the selection ranges obtained with both grid systems were significantly lower than those obtained with any of the codends tested during the CRANNET project. However, the concepts tested here require further development before being considered for commercial use.
