The SED appearing within the 5 released documents is not representative of the current SEDs in use in trawling operations. Further trials of SEDs, since the time of the footage contained in the 5 documents released, have shown that top opening SEDs, in conjunction with other design developments result in a reduction in adverse fishing interactions with seals. The SED shown in the attached 5 document shows the operation of a bottom opening SED and not the improved top opening design.
