Dredge Nets

Dredge Fishing

              Dredge fishing is not a popular fishing gear in the country because shell resources and areas are limited. Most of the dredges made of iron wire, bamboo, and combination of wood, net and iron materials, are operated nearshore and on a small scale. Small shells are also collected by a dredge towed by a small banca.
