Abstract
    In 1998, Polish-German selectivity tests were carried out on codends withmeshes turned through 90 °. One of the codend was made of polyamide (PA) with 85 mm mesh openings in commercial catches. Two of the codends were polyethylene (PE) with 120 mm and 100 mm mesh openings. The polyethylene codends tests were carried out jointly by the Sea FisheriesInstitute in Gdynia (Poland) and the Institut fur Fischereitechnik (IFH) in Hamburg (Germany). In both cases, the test results of the new codend constructions proved their significant protective properties. Codends with meshes turned through 90° have many advantages and their application may help to restore fish resources in the Baltic Sea (Poland).
