Ring Netting

Ring netting is a method of fishing for mid-water shoaling fish species. It is used in Cornwall to target shoals of sardines, and occasionally anchovies and herring. Ring nets work in a similar way to the much larger purse seine nets. An encircling net is shot around a shoal of fish, and a rope beneath the net then pulls it together encircling the shoal.
