-- Mean sublegal (SL), legal (L), and total (TOT) catch per effort by number (CPENO) and mean size (mm carapace width) by trap type and probability levels between trap types (2.54SQ, 3.81SQ, and 5.08SQ = 2.54, 3.81, and 5.08cm square mesh; RECT = 2.54 by 5.08 cm rectangular mesh; HEX = 3.81 cm hexagonal mesh).
Sublegal catch rate in the 2.54 SQ, 3.81 SQ, and RECT traps ranged from 63.1 to 76.1% of the total (Table 2).
-- Percent sublegals and catch per effort by weight (CPEWT) in grams by trap type (SL=sublegal, L=legal, TOT = total, 2.54SQ, 3.81SQ, and 5.08SQ = 2.54, 3.81, and 5.08 cm square mesh, respectively; RECT = 2.54 by 5.08 cm rectangular mesh; HEX = 3.81 cm hexagonal mesh).
Overall catch rate by number varied significantly among all traps except the 3.81 SQ and RECT traps (Table 1).
The modal peaks for each mesh type were 97 mm CW for the 2.54 SQ trap, 107 mm CW for 3.81 SQ and RECT traps, 127 mm CW for the HEX trap, and 137 mm CW for the 5.08 SQ trap.
-- Catch rates by number by 10 mm carapace-width size groups by trap type (HEX = 3.81 cm hexagonal mesh; 2.54 SQ, 3.81 SQ, and 5.08 SQ = 2.54, 3.81 and 5.08 cm square mesh, respectively; RECT = 2.54 by 5.08 cm rectangular mesh).
This capability to monitor cargo has blocked diversion and improved transit times by eliminating driver-initiated delays.The RECTS
has been extended to the tracking of sensitive exports, especially tobacco and spirits that have also been the target of dumping.
