After spotting a school of Yellowfin Tuna from the air using their onboard helicopter the school is wrapped with the Seiners huge net. The name Purse Seiner comes from the process of how the bottom of the net is then drawn closed like a large purse. The net is then slowly winched back aboard the seiner along with its catch.
Other than a by-catch Striped Marlin this set and several others we saw came up completely empty.
