On a sad note, a young blue shark who got tangled in a long fishing line came up on deck along with the EBS. Longline fishing is a method for targeting meso- and bathypelagic sea inhabitants, and it has a long and controversial history. One line can be up to 62 miles long carrying about 10,000 baited hooks at intervals of several metres. Some techniques demand dragging the line behind a fishing vessel, others drift in the water column until they are retrieved. The non-selective nature of longlining is a major issue as the amount of incidental bycatch of untargeted species such as dolphins, penguins, sea turtles, sharks, or sea birds. In particular it is estimated that per year, more than 300,000 birds drown being hooked on longlines (https://doi.org/10.1053/j.tcam.2013.09.006). Mitigation attempts are made to reduce preventable bycatch involved in industrial open ocean fishing, but such findings are a reminder that consumer education and ethical practices still have a way to go in the modern world.
