Pole/ Troll


Pole/troll fishermen use a fishing pole and bait to target a variety of fish, ranging from open ocean swimmers, like tuna and mahi mahi, to bottom dwellers, like cod. Pole/troll fishing is environmentally responsible and a good alternative to pelagic longlining. Unlike pelagic longlines, which catch sharks, marine mammals, sea turtles and seabirds as bycatch, pole/troll fishermen have very low bycatch rates.
