Scottish Seine

The Scottish Seine is considered an environmentally sound method of fishing in part due to that it is only suitable to fish along muddy or sandy bottoms that regularly see seafloor changes. It is composed of a light, rounded triangular shaped net that has an open mouth and glides just above the seafloor. It is towed along the seafloor by leaded ropes with a high amount of tension which therefore eases the amount of weight that they apply to the seafloor. This method of fishing targets bottom dwelling species such as halibut, petrale and skate.
