The fishing net is a net made from woven fibers shaped in a grid-like pattern and is used for fishing. Also known as fish traps, they are typically meshes created by fastening a relatively thin thread. Earlier, such angling nets were fabricated of flax, grass, and fibrous plant fibers, and subsequently, cotton was also applied. Nowadays, with the advent of technology, nets are composed of synthetic polyamides like nylon, whereas the organic polyamide nets of silk or wool were widely used, and still in use.
Net fishing is a one-of-a-kind technique for the fishermen, helping to optimize their time and endeavor, as it provides an easier method to deal with scratches from the skinned and cleaned fish. Here, the anglers can cast their nets several feet down, even as 300 feet down for a bountiful catch. They can fish from the banks, trawl from a boat, or deploy industrial nets.
