What is trawling?
#Repost @bhushanbagadiapositives (@get_repost)
A method to catch prawns and other fish that was promoted four decades ago in India that even fishermen admit that it is destructive. But today a substantial portion of our fisherman depend on trawling, even though there is barely anything left to catch. It has become the 'inconvenient truth' of fishing in India.
There are no simple answers to these questions. However there are simple things one can do to minimise one's impact on ocean ecosystems. One can think about fish breeding cycles, fishing methods and modify one's fish choices accordingly. .
Fortunately if you are on west coast of India, Know Your Fish team has done the thinking for you.

Took this on the Cliff Walk because I thought the yellow moss on the rocks was super fascinating. Although, after some research I learned that it's not in fact moss, but rather An organism called Lichens. For those who don't know lichens are a very different type of creature, called a composite organism. Not just a plant, lichens are actually a single entity created from a joining of algae and fungus. They also grow in some of the most extreme environmental conditions. Furthermore, what is the most interesting part is that lichens can grow and live inside of rocks by working its way through the grains. Overtime they contribute to a process called weathering which will turn these rocks structures into soil. (Info from Wikipedia and knowledgenuts)
Free diving is one of my most favorite things in the world. The thrill and bliss and fear of visiting the underwater world with all its creatures for handfuls of seconds until my lungs burn and my ear drums are about to burst is something I have loved since I was little and dream about all the time. #freedive#bigisland#oceanlove
These 3 hours of fun + relaxing #oceanlove was part of my therapy today! This floaty was so worth to buy! We have used it for surfing but especially for chilling! 🙌🏼❤
This is the beauty of still having to consider the boys between all the demands of planning a move and day to day household things to do! I am exhausted but so ready for tomorrow! 💪🏼🙏🏼 #beautyoflife ☺🙌🏼
💁🏼F yeah! I just completed & shipped off the last five of twenty mirrors for the Grace Bay Club on Turks and Caicos!! 🙈😂 A mini miracle, as I literally took the order with about enough driftwood to make maybe two of this sized mirror! But with some luck from the driftwood gods, and a whole lotta hustle, I got er done!! #hallelujah !!! #timetocelebrate 🎉 👏🏻🙌🏻😆
