How Are Wild Fish Caught?
Depending on the species of fish, there are many different ways that commercial operations can bring in a steady supply. The halibut are most often reeled in using long line procedures. This involves casting out one giant line, which can hold anywhere between 25 and 2,500 individual, baited hooks. In effect, many fish can be caught in short order. The halibut prefer cold waters and offer a distinct taste that is sought after by many chefs around the world. On the other hand, scallops are harvested by dredging the ocean floor while shrimp can be caught in mass quantities out around the Mexican waters.
