Overall Statistics
13 Fishing vessels outfitted/involved
63 ARC-1 acoustic releases used/delivered
Estimated 90 sea trial days across all boats
Estimated 700-1000 deployment & recovery cycles
(Estimates based on extrapolation of CWLA observed effort of eight sea
trial days per boat, 8-12 deployment & recovery cycles per test day
An Endless Summer of Ropeless Fishing
CWLA Sea Trial Goals:
 Determine if ropeless fishing is a workable
and realistic proposition for fishers in LFA34
 Have a tool in the arsenal for their members
to continue fishing during closures
How CWLA Went About It
Step 1
Fundamentals of system
components, operation,
servicing were taught &
practiced in the class
room, dockside and a
day at sea with all fishers
present
How CWLA Went About It
Step 2
1-2 days of training at
sea for each fisher
How CWLA Went About It
Step 3
Unsupervised sea days,
with each boat & crew
operating individually

present)
How CWLA Went About It
Step 4
