Fish Trap

Fish traps are weighted traps which are baited and set at the bottom of the seafloor. When set, traps are connected to a downline, which is connected to a buoy on the surface. Fish traps have specific entrance sizes to limit the species targeted. A maximum of 5 or 15 traps can be used at any one time depending on location.
