Amazing Details accurate to the Jenny shrimp boat:
Shrimp boats (or shrimpboats) arespecialized fishing boats that are specifically designed for shrimping, catching both shrimp and prawns in their nets or traps. Commercialshrimping is a significant industry for many regions worldwide, including the Gulf of Mexico, the Pacific Northwest, southeast Asia andthe Gulf of Thailand.
The most common type of shrimper isthe trawler, which pulls a net through the water as it cruises slowlythrough bays, gulfs or open seas. Seines, or seine nets, which surroundthen envelope and contain a school of shrimp, can also be used as wellas cast nets, while baits and traps are common shrimp fishing techniquesin some regions.
Shrimp trawlers often use a style offishing net known as an otter net (or otter trawler). This type ofconical net is held open by a combination of floats at the top andweights at the bottom as it moves through the water, scooping everythingit catches into its long reservoir. Unwanted catch other than shrimp isknown as bycatch, which is usually returned to the sea. In theU.S., shrimp boats (as well as the shrimp trawlers of fleets whichselltheircatch to the United States) now use a variety of bycatchexcluder devices to reduce the amount of undesired catch and safeguardother species of fish and sea turtles. Such devices include gratesthrough which shrimp pass but fish do not, or the turtle excluderdevice, which allows sea turtles to swim safely away from the net.
