Turtle-Proofing Fishing Gear

Record #:
Sea turtles get caught in fishermen’s nets all the time. However, a new device is being designed to fit onto a fisherman’s net that will sort out any heavy objects, such as a sea turtle, and push it through a trap door in the bottom of the net. This is expected to save many turtles from being trapped and killed by the nets.
