Driftnet Fishing


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Driftnet fishing boats can lay out up to 30 miles of net in a single night. They capture everything that swims by, from commercially useful fish to dolphins, sharks and protected salmon. The result is overfishing of the worldwide stock of seafood.

First Broadcast: 1999
Producer: Steve Amen
