The study is based on a literature review, collection and evaluation of data from seiners of Gulf of Bone and was conducted to enhance the knowledge within fishermen and to strengthen the educational institutions. In this study, it is shown how the net’s dimension, ropes, net twines, rings and sinkers can affect the performance. The findings of this project can also be used in developing training for fishermen.
