Abstract
    Trials were carried out in the spring, summer and winter months of 1989 to evaluate the performance of different set net types, materials and mesh sizes in the sole and plaice fisheries of the Eastern English Channel. The trials were carried out from Hastings on the 10 m 70 hp ''ST RICHARD''. The results showed how the many variables can interact to affect both selectivity of these nets and their efficiency.
