Background information and definitions
Retaining buoys and lines at the sea floor or river bed when not hauling may reduce the risk of marine and freshwater mammals becoming entangled in vertical lines within the water column. Buoy lines may be kept coiled on the fishing pot or trap until they are remotely released to the surface by fishers for hauling (e.g. Partan & Ball 2016). Automatic or timed-release systems may also be used.
