Fishery experts have known for years that shrimp trawling
operations in the Gulf of Mexico are contributing to sharp declines in the ranks of Red Snapper, one of the most delicious and popular marine fish on the seafood menu.

Bottom trawling impacts, clearly visible from space
Boston MA: Bottom trawling, an industrial fishing method that drags large, heavy nets across the seafloor stirs up huge, billowing plumes of sediment on shallow seafloors that can be seen from space.
As a result of scientific studies showing that bottom trawling
kills vast numbers of corals, s...
