Winds of change in littoral fishing: nets changed for traps
The Baltic Sea littoral zone is a ca. 20 m deep and ca. 3 km width littoral belt along the Lithuanian coast, extending 50 km north and south from the Klaipėda port gate. This aquatic area is important both from economic and recreational point of view. It distinguishes by a great productivity and biological diversity; it is important as fish foraging and spawning grounds, as a spawning migration route and waterfowl migration area, and it is gradually becoming more attractive for seals. The littoral zone is important both for commercial and amateur fishing.
