Should the use of driftnets to catch fish be banned?

  • Losing it dolphins die

    Well yes and no like fishing nets could get lost that has happened to us in new Zealand quite a bit. Dolphins and marine life an get caught and suffocate such as dolphins sharks ect.

    But at the same time no because if you just want a fish for dinner it is an easy way to catch one.

  • Yes I think it should be banned .

    Some driftnets are lost and marine life become stuck in them until they die
    they are made of a strong nylon, not biodegradable
    by catching happens, which mean that marine life that is count that fishermen are not looking for b/c they think it isn't as profitable as another type of marine life is thrown back into the water, they usually die from impact of have died when they were pulled up from net.
    People on the side of "we should not ban drift netting" say that we need people to feed. However, if we use up marine life faster then the speed that fish produce, we won't be able to eat fish, because they will run out. Eventually.
    That is why we should ban driftnet fishing

  • We need to keep the fishermen's careers alive, so driftnets should never be banned.

    It is so important, especially in a down economy, to keep food resources active. This includes fish and, specifically, fishermen. They need to have the ability to use driftnets, so that they can continue to catch enough fish to feed the country. They offer the ability to get plenty of fish in a short time, which is vital to keep the industry alive.

  • Without driftnet fishing, seafood would be so expensive, many people of limited economic means wouldn't be able to afford it.

    There is no evidence that driftnet fishing is harming any endangered species. While some desirable species such as dolphins and porpoises and sea turtle could be accidentally harmed by the use of driftnets, these aren't the problems which are hurting the species overall numbers. More sea species are harmed by pollution and damage of coastal habitat than are harmed by driftnets.

  • Driftnets are good for catching fish and should not be banned.

    Public fish markets have used the fishing products and the driftnets have been used for many years to catch fish for a market use. They are good and they should be used because they catch fish very easily and that is good way to profit from fish using those nets. They are accessible and they don't pollute.

  • I don't with banning driftnets to catch fish, they are the most efficient way to catch fish.

    Casting a drift net has proved efficient in catching large quantities of fish. People do have a problem with these nets because they catch stray dolphins in them. I think if there was a way to either free or return unwanted fish from capture these nets would be seen as safer. These nets do make it easier for fishermen to get the most out of there trips.

  • Drift netting is okay

    Drift netting is the only way some fisherman make any income and if they lost this job it would ruin the economy and many people would lose their jobs. If drift netting gets banned seafood prices would skyrocket since nobody would be bringing in enough fish to the markets to be sold to the public. Also the fish have enough space to live as their is already a ban on drift netting in international which gives fish plenty of room for breeding. Final note, the talk around the large amounts of caught non-target species is always going to happen but not the amount people talk about and there really is no reports of any harm to endangered species.

I wonder how may commenting on this have ever use a drift net? I wonder how much they hate the native, third world and subsistence fishermen that don't have a MacDonalds within hundreds of mile of their homes? Commercial vs. Subsistence is a discussion but the way this is worded is how so many laws are passed with no input from anyone with a real experience just lots of books knowledge and no wisdom. Please stay in your cities and we will smile and be nice when you visit and be so glad when your gone to tell the world how much you help us. Just keep your ignorance to yourself walk a mile in my shoes and then you can babble about the environment most people that are concerned about the environment have running water, roads and a million conveniences and people within mins of them. Die in your coffins you call a city and keep your ignorance there as well. I'm going to finish searching for a new drift net parts so I can repair mine.
