Description:Does economic necessity justify the use of special fishing nets that endanger non-edible species? Many struggling commercial fishermen find it necessary to cut their costs by using vast (sometimes a mile long!) gill nets that kill thousands of non-game species such as blue sharks, sea lions, and even gray whales. This documentary examines both sides of the issue.
