Escape route for small fry
August 30, 2012 |
‘By-catch’ might not be much of a byword at your local chippy, but catching unwanted fish is a serious threat to wild fish stocks, as well as to your favourite fish supper.
I’m hoping Dan Watson’s SafetyNet will help. His ‘escape rings’ attach to nets and guide smaller fish out through them with bright lights that the fish find attractive.
The lights are self-powered by the motion of the ocean on the nets – which makes them a sustainable way to save our seafood for generations to come.
