He is the last sardine fisherman to use the technique of the purse - seine fishing. But still ? This is an encircling net launched at high speed - and rotating around the coveted fish bench. While the upper part is equipped with floats, the lower part is ballasted. Thus equipped, it sinks under water at the speed of 10 meters per second! Finally, a slide allows the "bending" of the net, that is to say the closing of the lower part in order to retain the entire encircled fish. The fish , in this way, captured are then taken on board with a large landing net called "salabarde". This is the technique used by the fishermen of Kanedevenn to trap the sardine bank.
