Pair trawling animation

Almost a quarter of all the sea creatures caught in global fisheries are killed and discarded - falling prey to destructive and indiscriminate fishing methods like pair trawling. The fishing industry refers to these 'non-targeted' species as bycatch. They are also known as fish, whales, dolphins, porpoises, fur seals, albatrosses and turtles.
