* Functional Cod end Length – That length of the cod end of a trawl beginning at the cod end tie-off and extending forward for a maximum of 105 meshes or to the point where the straight extension ends and the trawl body taper begins, whichever is less. Trawls utilizing short cod ends may include those meshes of the TED extension that are behind the TED grid and are in-line with the center of the “SEA EAGLE” escape opening.

** If your cod end is not included in this Table, you can figure the maximum placement for your net by following the formula: (mesh count multiplied by 38, divided by 100, using a 50 mesh cod end as an example: (50*38)/100=19).
