Fishing of mackerel

Mackerel are small members of the tuna family, and are great fish on a fly rod. Because most mackerel have small mouths and teeth, they prefer smaller baitfish, which makes them the perfect fly rod fish.

Mackerel may be taken in pound traps or with gill nets, but by far the greatest quantities are taken with purse seines.

The principle of purse seining is to surround fish shoals by large net that can be closed so that the fish cannot escape. When the net is hauled back, the fish will become concentrated in a bag ready for brailing or pumping onboard.

If the boat is to remand out of port after the fish caught they are held in ice in the round, uneviscerated state.
