What are the most effective fishing methods

Fishing gear categories (wild fish)

In the case of wild fish, a distinction is made between active and passive fishing methods. The main difference is that with active fishing methods, the fishing gear is not anchored in a fixed location, but can be moved during the fishing process. The fish are, so to speak, "collected" and do not have to move to the fishing gear.

  • Containment nets and lifting nets
