Fish Capture and Fishing Gears

When evaluating the sustainability of any seafood, one of the key considerations is the ecological impact associated with the fishing gear used to capture a species. The same species, caught using different gears may have very different environmental consequences. There are many types of fishing gear and they all impact the marine environment (marine life and habitat) in different ways and to different degrees. This is why the same species may have different rankings depending to the gear that was used to catch it. For example, tuna caught using surface or pelagic longlines often appears as a yellow or red choice because these fishing methods result in high volumes of bycatch and the death of marine birds, marine mammals and sea turtles. The same species of tuna caught using troll lines is a green choice because this fishing method has a significantly smaller bycatch
