    • Does selective fishing conserve community biodiversity? Predictions from a length-based multispecies model 

      Rochet, M.J.; Collie, J.S.; Jennings, S.; Hall, S.J. (2011)
      Type: Journal Article
      This study challenges the widely held view that improved fisheries selectivity would always help to maintain marine biodiversity. Using a length-based multi-species model, we investigate the effects of selective versus ...
