Cephalopods: octopus, cuttlefish
|A bottom otter trawl is a cone-shaped net consisting of a body, normally made from two, four and sometimes more panels, closed by one or two codends and with lateral wings extending forward from the opening. A bottom trawl is kept open horizontally by two otter boards. A boat can be rigged to tow a single or two parallel trawls from the stern or from two outriggers.|
|These are trawlers on which the fish is preserved by freezing.
|Species EnvironmentBenthic, neritic species occurring from the coastline to the outer edge of the continental shelf (in depths from 0 to 200 m), where they are found in a variety of habitats, such as rocks, coral reefs, grass beds and on sandy to muddy bottoms.|
