Trawling as a method of fishing is;

  • Trawling involves dragging a cone shaped bad (trawl) over the sea bed behind a boat or trawler.
  • A bag shaped net attached to the ship trawler is dragged along the sea bed to trap the fish
  • The net is cast into the sea by a trawler.
  • The upper part of the net is kept a float by floats and the bottom held down by weights.
  • Then it is dragged on the sea bottom at low speed.
  • The mouth of the net is kept open by the floats and weights.
  • Fish swim into the net and trapped in.
  • Once enough fish is caught the net is hauled into the trawler and the fish is removed.
