Destructive Fishing Methods in the Gulf of Thailand

Resource - Greenpeace asset

Workers sort fish catch onboard a bottom trawler in the Gulf of Thailand. Bottom trawl fishing uses weighted nets that are dragged on the bottom of the seafloor and can destroy whole habitats. When used with very small net mesh sizes they also catch everything in their path including non targeted species and juvenile marine life. Greenpeace is documenting illegal and destructive fishing methodologies in the Gulf of Thailand as part of its Oceans Defender tour.
