Midwater otter trawl, Purse seines, Gillnets
On the east coast of Canada there are several MSC-certified herring fisheries that fish with gillnet, [purse seine] or [midwater otter trawl]. These methods have little [bycatch]. Because there is no interaction between the fishing gear and the seabed, there is no negative fishery impact on the seabed or environment in sea.
