Abstract: Trammel nets are one of the most commonly exploited gears of small scale fisheries used all along the Greek coasts. However, knowledge on the discards of this gear is scarce. Discards in trammel net fishery include species with no commercial value, or commercial species, which cannot be distributed in the market because of their small size, or because they come on board already destroyed. The mesh size of the nets and depth of fishing operations are two factors affecting the proportion of the discards.
