Bottom Trawling

Bottom trawling is when you pull a large net along the seabed targeting fish that live in the bottom third of the water.

Bottom trawling targets "demersal" fish which are fish that live near the bottom of the sea. 

Often bottom trawling means you will need a more powerful boat than other types of fishing.
