The phenomenon of discarding was studied using a multidisciplinary approach to allow the integration of biological, social and economic data. The research aimed to evaluate the strength of the case to reduce discarding in a single case study fishery, the English Nephrops fishery; to identify specific objectives for discard reduction; to identify factors that inhibit discard reduction and to determine the best means of achieving those objectives. Changes in trawl structure offered the best solution while having the least impact on fishing opportunities. However, the inadequate level of incentive was identified as the main impediment to discard reduction rather than the lack of technical ability. To implement effective measures to reduce discarding in this fishery, an increased level of incentive is required. Three measures are identified as a means to achieve this. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
