The scientific trial of electrofishing for razor clams commenced on 1 February 2018. The trial was authorised following public consultation and in light of scientific research which demonstrated that the electrofishing method is highly selective, produces high quality product with zero bycatch and is less intrusive than traditional methods, like dredging. The trial aims to help understand the potential economic impact of the industry and provide useful evidence on how this fishery can be managed effectively and sustainably. Surveys were undertaken as part of the scientific work commissioned by the Marine Directorate.
