Should the use of driftnets to catch fish be banned?

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Drift net fishing should NOT be banned

    With the current population expected to increase, we will need these nets to keep up with the demand for more and more fish. More people means more mouths to feed. If net fishing were banned, what other means can we use to harvest a huge abundance of fish? We can't feed the world if we end drift net fishing.

  • I do not think driftnets should be banned, because they are necessary and vital for fisherman and economies that rely on seafood as a source of income.

    The BP oil spill supports my claim that banning driftnets will affect fishermen and the economy. Fisherman rely on how much is brought in. They need a certain amount to make a certain amount of income. They have to pay for their boats, and everything that goes along with the use of their boat, including insurance, gasoline, and labor. When the oil spill happened, there was nothing coming in from the fisherman and, as a result, businesses closed and BP paid millions for damages. I believe banning driftnets will have similar effects, by limiting how much the fisherman are able to bring in without them.

  • Banning the use of driftnets to catch fish would have a serious impact on the price of fish.

    I can remember when the webbing in the nets was changed to avoid catching dolphins. I agreed with this practice, though it meant the price of tuna went up. And, I do agree with regulations regarding the use of driftnets, in order to prevent over-fishing. However, to totally eliminate a way of fishing that has been done for many years would be wrong. It is important to protect our oceans. But, it is also important for fishermen to make a living, and for the consumer's cost at the grocery store not to go up. The American people are stretched to our limits now. We can't afford another price increase.

  • 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.

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.
