The purpose of this conference was to present currently available information about the effects of fishing gear on the sea floor of New England, and how these effects relate to fishing productivity, benthic habitats and biodiversity. Speakers summarized observations on the relative importance of natural and fishing-related disturbance to the ocean bottom, and related these to fish habitat and ecosystem functioning.
