Monitored species: Harbor porpoise (bycatch)
Period: 2011 and ongoing
Number of vessels in the program: 9
Geographic scope of the program: Inner Danish Water, North Sea and Skagerrak
A brief description of the equipment employed in the EM / ER:
All vessels were equipped with REM from Anchor lab K/S, including cameras, GPS and gear sensors, all connected to a control box where data was stored on two mirrored hard-discs. Video recording started when the vessel left the harbour (predefined mailbox coordinates) and automatically turned off when entering the harbour again, using the GPS signal to trace position.
