A Variety Of Fishing Practices T3W9

A Variety Of Fishing Practices

Hello, my topic is about different types of fishing methods.
Did you know dredging is one of the top fishing material that’s mostly used all over the world?

Second Paragraph:  
Are you wondering what type of fishing practice will get you scallops, oysters,clams and shellfish?
Because I know the perfect fishing practice, and it’s called ‘Dredging’. Well dredging is the type of fishing tool you would want to use. For dredging you can use 2 or 1 steel cage nets to collect enough for yourself or your family. If you catch unwanted species like crabs and lobster you can throw out the unwanted sea creatures that you don’t want. If you don’t want lobsters and crabs then release them back into the ocean. The natural cause is that it can ruin the seafloor.

Third Paragraph
Trawl fishing is a classic way of fishing, because there is different types of techniques that are mostly used. Trawl fishing is when a big net is tied behind 1 or 2 boats that are driven to collect fish. The only danger is with trawling is that you won’t know what you're collecting under the ocean, and also you can entangle and kill the sea creatures or mammals that have been trapped.

Fourth Paragraph
Gillnetting is a common type of fishing skills. This type of fishing skill is mostly used if you are going to catch sardines, salmon, fish and cods. It is a very great way of fishing. when the fish try to go through and they get trapped in the net they end up being entangled, and captured. Also, it might catch sea mammals that accidentally get caught in the net.

Fifth Paragraph
Traps and Pots
Traps and pots is a passive way to catch fish, shellfish, crabs, prawns, octopus and squid, but the danger that is within trawl fishing is that it may catch anything like endangered sea mammals and other sea creatures.


There are a lot of different fishing practises, but they all have something in common. That they catch fish, and different sea creatures in the sea. Some fishing practices can entangle and injure other sea creatures living in the sea. Not only that there’s always a danger that is within the fishing practices.
