Variation in FLH between hauls also strongly influenced the variation in sea whip contact rates for this footrope configuration, with higher FLHs resulting in lower contact rates (Fig.
As noted for contact rates, sea whip disturbance rates, although very low with the no-groundline footrope, were variable among hauls and depended somewhat on FLH (Fig.
