Seining showcases marine wonders

Have you ever experienced seining? Seining is when you drag a large net with tiny holes along the bottom of the water to catch tiny sea creatures. It takes at least two people to handle the nets.

Seining is done in shallow water where both people can touch the bottom. We enjoy seining because you never know what you will catch. Some things we have caught are minnows, crabs, baby fluke and flounder, shrimp and puffer fish. After we catch them, we put them in a bucket filled with salt water to observe them. When we are finished, we transfer them back into the bay again or use the large minnows for bait. Seining is an exciting way to explore marine life.
