“Laying Out the Beach Seine” (Granite Bay, BC)
12” x 16” | Oil on board
There are several ways of deploying a salmon seine net, based on location of the fishery.
One method used is called a “beach seine”. Here they row the skiff to the beach towing the end of the net, which when landed is secured to a tree. The seine boat lays out the net and maintains heading into the current. After a period of time the seine boat circles back to the beach and the catch is hauled in.
