The effect of controlled release of fluid mackerel extract as bait in Norway lobster pots was tested in comparative fishing trials. Compared with natural mackerel bait, pots with extract release rates above 6 ml/h had higher catch rates than mackerel baited pots. There was no significant difference in length distribution of Norway lobsters between the two types of bait.
