Fishing

Commercial fishing is an established industry in the marine environment.

Fishing

Commercial fishing (also known as industrial fishing) involves the capture of fish and other seafood for profit. Commercial fishing gear includes nets, seine nets, trawls, dredges, hooks and lines, lift nets, gillnets, entagling nets, pole and line, and traps. This industry has been practiced since early civilizations, but fishing is occuring on a larger scale than ever before, leading the decline of many fish populations. There are percieved spatial conflicts with marine energy, as devices may prevent certain types of fishing around the project footprint. Yet marine energy may increase fishery production in the wild, by creating diverse fish assemblages. Marine energy also has some concern that direlect fishing gear may foul marine energy devices.
