Abstract

It is now widely appreciated that an important aspect of protecting fish stocks is the conservation of the habitats and animal communities on which those stocks depend. Over the years, fish catching techniques and devices have undergone remarkable variations, every time improving their efficiency. Trawl net exploits fish and other organisms from the bottom of the seas.
