Dolphins Using Fishing Nets!

Monday, May 1, 2017 by Evan

There are often negative associations with dolphins and trawl fishing. Dolphins have been known to get unintentionally caught or tangled up in these nets, often because the dolphins and fishermen are working in the same area.

However, if given the opportunity, dolphins will use these trawl nets to their advantage. A Youtube video (linked below) by Swamp Fox Media shows dolphins swimming alongside trawl nets, and feeding on those fish that manage to escape. We thinks it’s pretty cool how the dolphins are using the nets as a source of food!

Check out the video for yourself!
