Fish is the most loving sea food and immensely available for all and in several homes is an always standing dish. Do you know how this sea food is made available for us??? Let’s discover some fish trawling methods. There are several fishing methods but most familiar and frequent method followed by both commercial and amateur guys is trawling. In this method a funnel shaped net is sank down the sea. It can catch deep water fishes as well as of mid depth, depends on reach of the net. Trawlers generally catch fish namely Pollock, shrimp, cod, sole and flounder. Though it is the most usual fishing method but has been considered harmful for viewpoint of marine environment. During the trawling the net catches a lot of unwanted like corals, sea plants, small rocks and other sea creatures. In this way trawling destroys sea treasure and diminishes amount of sea inhabitants.
Other fish trawling methods: Demersal trawling, Purse seines, Pelagic/mid-water trawling, gill and set nets (passive), Dredging, Drift, Long lining, Pole and line, Pots and creels and trolling and handling. In all over the world fisheries are being established more and more to secure a large stock for consumption in future and to leave oceans for recovery for a definite time. In this way our oceans would regain its lost assets and balance the reduced amount of several species. Marine sustainability fishery would positively provide great help in protection of marine environment to a large extent. The provided food from these fisheries would be certified by science-based MSC environmental standard. It suggests that these fisheries will be launched in marketplace along with an assurance for buyers and consumers that this seafood is quite safe, edible and comes from a certified and sustainable source.
As we know very well fish can be easily preserved both by customary and scientific methods but if we want to be sure we should prefer science and support sustainable fishing practices. MSC fishing seems a vital need if we too think about betterment of our marine environment. MSC standard is based on FAO code that will be the mark of excellence of fisheries and of other global preservation instruments. Beside this the NSCL (National Seafood Inspection Laboratory) will play an important role of inspection of these fisheries under the support of Department of Commerce Seafood Inspection Program. Since past fifty years fishing technology had incredibly advanced in spite of that if we remain behind to keep pace with new methods it would be really very destructive.
The purpose of spreading out environmental fishing methods & practises is nothing but to create a balanced ecosystem by stock monitoring and put a stop mark on destroying and harmful fishing methods. More it also relate to the survival of several species those are descending in number each day. Under environmental friendly fishing methods sorting grids and Survival of fish escaping from fish gear appear helpful and hopeful. So it is strongly needed to change your customary fishing method with new scientific and positive methods. If a great part of trawlers began to follow these new ways thus we can expect our marine in its earlier form; full of greenery, different sea creatures and other rocky and pearl treasures.
