Work cat.: Effects of different fishery management schemes on bycatch, joint catch, and discards, 1990: p. 7 ("In all fisheries, some fish, shellfish, or other organisms are discarded at sea ... Discards include those fish and shellfish which have lower or no market value, are damaged during harvest, or cannot be legally sold. Other organisms such as marine mammals, birds, and turtles are accidentally caught and discarded in some fisheries ... Discarding of bycatch or lower valued fish (high-grading) is among the most difficult fishery management challenges.") p. 8 ("Discards" are the portion of the total catch that is discarded at sea)
