bycatch reducing shrimp trawling

they don't explicitly mention this preventing ceph bycatch, but I bet it does help in that department. I'm curious about shrimp trawling in general... I've always wondered how you trawl for shrimp, since they clearly live on the bottom, but you probably don't really want the huge rollers that cause all the bottom trawling damage. Most shrimp I've seen seem to like hanging out in holes in the reef, which seem like they'd be impossible to trawl for at all, but I imagine the shrimp that are trawled live on muddy or sandy bottoms...?

Anyway, I though this sounds like positive news, and I'm glad that some major markets, including the US, are requiring that imported seafood be caught with bycatch-reducing methods.
