Modern Fishing Methods
Seining method of fishing
- Method is used to catch pelagic and anadromous/migratory fish which swim in shoals.
- A Bag like nets with small meshes (seine) attached to two boats on each end is cast into the sea.
- It’s kept open and held in position by floats on top and weights at the bottom.
- Fish move towards the net and get trapped.
- The net is hauled over and fish emptied onto the ship or the net is hauled to the shore (haul seining).
- Leads to overfishing because it doesn’t discriminate the ages of fish caught.
