    Is this from BBC`s Pacific?

    Quite old if it is. But I thought that was an Attenborough doc?

    Edit: I see it seems to be a new doc. "South Pacific".

    On topic: All tuna I buy is rod+line. More expensive, but happy to pay extra.

    @skytz1337 - I think you`re missing the point, you get no bycatch with rod+line wishing. Should some other sea creature be hooked up, if they`re not fishing for it, it gets put back in the water.

    Also this form of fishing is sustainable. Whereas net-based fishing is scouring oceans of life.

    vv good point @Buiadh, by-catch is BAD! Lots of fish & other creatures get killed by nets for no reason.

    Now I`m hungry...

    That was beautiful.

    And if you are stuck with manual labour in a third world country, that`s the job to go for.

    This is perfect, no drag net killing whole bunch of species. Target fishing, looks like employes a lot more people too & sounds sustainable. Those draters are big one yellow/ blue fin will take care of one seating of big sushi restaurant. Cool cool cool

    Is there something wrong with me that I think those fish look CGI? Or is anyone with me on this? Something`s not right about this...
