Johnny is endorsed to use the following fishing methods to responsibly harvest local sustainable seafood:
A net which consists of one or more hoops in which netting is attached to form a conical shape. The hoop net sits on the ocean floor, and is retrieved using a length of rope which is attached to a buoy. These nets are used in coastal waters to catch blue crabs and sand crabs. A maximum of 10 nets can be used at one time.
Rod and Reel/Handline
Standard techniques where one or more baited hooks or lures are attached to a fishing line to capture various species of fish including squid.
A longline is a rope or line with baited hooks attached which is held slightly above the seabed or surface. They are anchored and buoyed at both ends of the line, with a haul-in line attached at each end of the mainline, and are set from a moving vessel. A maximum of 400 hooks can be used at any one time.
