Excerpt: Until recently, concerns about the sustainable exploitation of marine resources focused mainly on proper management of the fish stocks targeted by directed fisheries. During the last two decades, however, growing concerns have been raised about the impacts on the ecosystem in general (Gislason, 1994). Questions about how towed fishing gears such as trawls and dredges may affect benthic habitats and organisms have attracted a great deal of attention, and consequently a large number of investigations addressing this issue have been conducted over the last decade. The reasons for such concern are that complex benthic habitats provide shelter and refuge for juvenile fish, and benthic organisms comprise important food sources (direct or indirect) for demersal fish (Auster et al ... 1996; Collie, Escanero and Valentine, 1997).
