All netting methods result in some level of bycatch: unwanted marine creatures that are caught along with the desired fish. These can include dolphins, marine turtles, small sharks and seabirds.
These unwanted creatures are tossed overboard and often die. It is estimated that over 300,000 small whales, dolphins and porpoises die each year from entanglement in fishing nets.
There is a better way!
At FinerFin we insist on exclusive use of
pole-and-line practices to catch our fish.
- ...is an ancient, artisanal fishing method where each fish is caught individually.
- ...uses no nets, harms no other sea creatures, and damages no marine habitat.
- ...is labor-intensive, creating more jobs and enabling us to support local fishermen.
