The objective of this project is to reduce the impact of the shrimp fishery (Pleoticus muelleri) on the by-catch, through the design, construction and installation of a device Excluder juvenile fish in fishing nets of a local fishing community handmade Punta del Diablo, department of Rocha, Uruguay.
