Objective The ORHAGO technological cruise aimed to study the feasibility, through measurements and observations, of deploying and towing bottom pair trawls with a short rig (prawn type) in order to eliminate any drawing in effect of non-target species. This request from the DRV/RH department at L'Houmeau should eventually replace the 25 m Vendéen-type double bag trawl used on the RESSGASC cruises.
