Trap camera videos from SGaan Kinghlas - Bowie Seamount: Fs97-13/1279E-PDF

overview of data obtained during sablefish bottom longline trap fishing in 2016 /

“Since 1985, Sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) fishery in British Columbia has occurred at SGaan Kinghlas - Bowie (SK-B) Seamount. Conical traps are used with a bottom diameter of 54-58” and are attached to bottom longlines that are anchored, typically a set will comprise 40-80 traps. The SK-B Seamount Marine Protected Area (MPA) was established in 2008 around three seamounts: Hodgkins, Davidson and Bowie (SGaan Kinghlas). To manage commercial fishing activities, the SK-B MPA was separated into three zones. Zone 1 (SK-B seamount down to 457 m) and Zone 3 (Hodgkins and Davidson seamounts) are closed to fishing, while zone 2 is open for Sablefish longline trap fishery deeper than 457 m on SK-B Seamount. A joint research project between DFO, Simon Fraser University, and Wild Canadian Sablefish Ltd. has been carried out since 2012 to capture deep-sea videos from the Sablefish longline trap fishery. This data report gives an overview of the video annotation of the habitat (substrate), impacts detected, soft corals (Alcyonacea, Antipatharia and Pennatulacea Orders; Stylasteridae Family) and sponges (Demospongiae and Hexactinellida Classes) observed from the SK-B fishing trip in May and June 2016"--Background, p. 4.
