On board a Pole & Line vessel / by Francisco Blaha

Pole and line is one of the most selective fishing methods around (no by catch), the captain sets over an identified school and employs a lot of people directly and indirectly with its associated bait boats. However, they catch in a year, what some purseiners catch in a month.

Would you be ok with paying a much higher price for a can of tuna, if it was fished this way?

While you consider it, come on board for a few minutes.
