Trawl is described as a sock-shaped net with a wide mouth tapering to a small, pointed end that is towed behind a vessel at any depth. This method is more indiscriminate than others because everything in the trawl?s path is scooped up in the net. Some countries are currently investigating the impact of bottom trawling on the seabed.
