Untitled photo, possibly related to: Aboard a trawler (locally called a dragger). The power-driven winch lets out the starboard net. While over fishing grounds one of two nets is constantly in the water, dragging along the bottom. Boats are powerful, diesel-engined, between forty and seventy-five feet long. Their unrestricted use has done much to cause the "fish-famine" along this coast because nets bring up everything, fish, minnows and even spawn. Provincetown, Massachusetts
