Nice find Subby. Plus- this makes it even cooler - "The net has also been designed to float one meter off the ground so that the seabed isn't damaged. "

I wonder how much impact a net like this can have when trawlers are still out there. It's definitely a wonderful response to conventional nets though.

i assume they desire to use these nets on trawlers. the wto and other international treaties already impose some restrictions on fishing practices (turtle escape nets, etc). if the system works, and isn't too expensive, it's not unreasonable to think that it could be forcibly enacted over international fishing markets.

So this net has been designed for two specific fish? That's a nice step and if this guy gets off the ground, I'd love to see more nets being designed. I wonder what the success rates are for the endangered species caught/escaped.

Trawlers will never switch to a better net. They are already using the worst ones out there. They simply don't care.

they don't care and they won't switch on their own accord, but that doesn't mean an organization like the wto couldn't place restrictions, or allow discrimination of seafood that is caught by the more damaging trawling techniques.

it happened with shrimp boats (they must have turtle escape devices). it was pretty controversial, but in the end, shrimpers are using turtle escape devices. no reason why a device like this, if economically feasible, can't be implemented in a regulatory scheme. especially since the rich countries are the most likely to implement such a measure first. then, those nations might use the new nets as a criteria to discriminate against foreign seafood (everyone loves a little protectionism). that will urge foreign fishermen to upgrade.

I really hope you are right. I'm going to miss cod if not.

well, I'm only saying it's possible. there needs to be a lot of political interest to get it moving.
