California Action Group Seeks to Stop Bottom Trawling

United Anglers of Southern California has begun a concerted effort to stop bottom trawling. Bottom trawlers drag heavily weighted nets across the fragile seabed, destroying vital structure and catching everything in their path, resulting in 30 percent or greater rates of bycatch, according to some studies.
