Caption: Animation of fishing using a purse seine. A purse seine is a large net that is weighted at the bottom and has floats at the top. It is laid out in a circle around a shoal of fish, and then a line running around the weighted bottom is pulled in, sealing the base. The rest of the net is then pulled in, along with the fish. This technique is used to catch fish that form large shoals near the surface, such as herring, mackerel and sardine.
