Sandy & Muddy Soft Bottom Trawling

sandy and muddy bottom trawling

Sandy and Muddy, or Soft Bottom Trawling has less impact on the ocean floor because these environments and the species that live in them, such as petrale sole and sand dabs, are adaptable to periodic shifting caused by storms and currents. Scale, targeting skill, and equipment are factors that determine whether this method of capture is a sustainable one or not.
