We want to test different degradable materials that attach the mouth
(funnel) to the main body of fish traps with a view to reducing ghost
fishing. The material can be in the form of string, twine, tape, clip or
pull tie however, must dissolve/deteriorate within a period of approx. 7
days (in sea water of about 28 Celcius).
Has anyone had experience with degradable materials that could be applied in
this context. Thanks for any help.
