Can they just take the flounder out? That would not be hard to do. Its a simple concept! Your just sailing along-:boat:
You put up your net and if you see-
:tusoteuth keep it
:goldfish: throw it off the boat
this makes people :smile: and not :yuck:
Also, can I use you in my paper on robots in society?

The problem is the flounder are already dead by the time they reach the boat. everything in the net is drowned

They only trawl because you catch more squid per unit effort than you do if you jig, and the quality of the squid is nowhere near as good. This is all about economics - it has nothing to do with ecological sustainability - it's a whitewash. This just winds me up!

The solution is simple - DON'T TRAWL FOR SQUID. We've been saying this since 2004.
