Radial Escape Section (RES) is primarily designed to allow fish to swim through large square meshes that extend radially around the codend and escape.
RES: the radial escape section

A funnel of netting is used to concentrate all animals into the middle of the codend. As fish exit the funnel some swim forward and through the large mesh openings. The square meshes are orientated so they remain open during the shot. Prawns do not have the ability to swim forward and escape through the square meshes. A flexible wire hoop is used to help the RES maintain shape.
