Sea life & the Bycatch issue

bycatch
(Click image to enlarge)

This is a big problem when it comes to commercial fishing. This is what they call what else is inadvertently caught in the nets apart from what they’re fishing for. The bycatch is usually dead or dying and thrown back into the ocean. These are things like shark, turtles, seahorse, bugs, dolphins, and squid. ‘Bycatch is either of a different species, the wrong sex, or is undersized or juvenile individuals of the target species.’ It’s a waste and terribly destructive to our oceans. (Nowadays some of the bycatch is processed into meal for farmed fish at least. But what is added to it first?)
