Fishing rods are used to catch schooling fish. The fish are lured to the water surface with the help of bait and then caught with the fishing rods. This fishing method has no effect on the seabed and is also very selective. Fish that do not belong to the target species or size can be easily released from the hook by hand and put back into the water.
Purse seines are mainly used for schooling fish. These nets are intended to surround the shoal. A line is used to close the net at the bottom and catch the fish.
