Fun Fact of the Day
A turtle excluder device is used to ensure turtles and other large sea animals don’t get caught in trawls. A grid of bars with an opening is placed either at the top or the bottom of the trawl net. Small animals, such as shrimp, pass through the bars and are caught in the bag end of the trawl. When larger animals, such as marine turtles and sharks are captured in the trawl, they strike the grid bars and are ejected through the opening.
