When going fishing you never truly know what the ocean will decide to give back

One method of fishing that really stood out to me was trolling, when you drag a huge fishing net across the bottom of the ocean floor, which is really good for catching all different types of fish but drastically bad for the environment of the ocean, destroying everything in its path. So the question I had for myself was: why is this a way to be catching fish, when you never know what you'll be getting?

About Kaeli

Conservation is important to me because we have limited natural recourses and it is our paramount responsibility to conserve; making art with recycled goods and materials is a way to make a statement piece about the importance of conserving. I wanted to participate in the CIC program because it was something different and new to me.
