History[edit | edit source]

The purse seine was an improvement in fishing nets that greatly increased productivity of fishermen. The improved seine required two ships working together to draw a deep wall net into a column around a school of fish. When the bottom of the net was closed, it created a great "purse", filled with fish, which could be hauled on board one of the ships to retrieve the catch.
