The main objective of the Gill Net is to capture fish of a certain size in the bottom of a watercourse by means of their gills
  • The commercial fishing gillnet is capable of catching a multitude of fish species (herring, mackerel, cod, shad, walleye, salmonids, sturgeon). 
  • It consists of a rectangular net spread vertically in the water.
  • The length can vary between 50ft and 300ft and the depth is usually 6ft or 8ft.
  • To keep the net vertical in the water,
    floats
    are installed every 6ft on the top and a
    lead core
    line on the bottom
  • This is for passive and selective fishery; the meshes must be adapted to the type of fish sought, which will be held by the meshes at the gills.
  • The gillnet is made of
    monofilament
    or
    multifilament
    . The size of the
    mesh
    and the percentage of mounting are chosen according to the fish sought.
Mesh Size per fish:
Walleye = Multifilamment 3in, 3-1/2in or 4in stretched
Sturgeon = Multifilamment 8in, 10in or 12in stretched
Salmonids = Monofilamment 4in, 5in or 6in stretched
