Did I miss this here? I thought that the carper vacuuming approach removed everything from a rather wide area, while single ships allowed for an area to remain populated. That's it, or not? or is it bottom trawling in general, or just fishery ballet from the air?

Bottom trawling, aka 'dragging', is highly controversial, to put it mildly! Around here, the fishermen use a 'winter trawl', which is supposed to be much less damaging to the ocean floor, and one of our fishermen wants it to be used year-round. Not much success with his efforts, though - God forbid that the 'experts' who wouldn't know a haddock from a hassock should ever take advice from a man who knows what he's doing.:mad:

About as cool as hunting rabbits by setting forest fires.

If I may say with respect, and as a person who has fished out of Hunt's Point, N.S., it is such lack of good advice that lead to the tragic ruination of the od fishery.
