PORTLAND, MAINE, UNITED STATES - 2022/09/28: A crew member aboard a commercial fishing boat tries to cut a shark loose from a gillnet fishing net, caught as bycatch off the coast of Maine. In a gillnet fishing boat, fishers haul their catch of monkfish, pollock, and cod from early morning until late at night. The fishing industry in Maine has recently taken a blow with the new set of restrictions on fishing. The environmental organization, Seafood Watch, recommends people to avoid eating American lobster. This listing and regulation poses new threats to fishers' livelihoods. While fisherfolk argue that lines pose only a minor risk to the incidental capture of endangered species such as sharks, dolphins, lobster, and crab, bycatch is nevertheless almost inescapable. Due to regulations, fishermen will often be forced to discard animals they do not want, cannot sell, or are not allowed to keep. (Photo by Mailee Osten-Tan/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images)
