Flying fish?


I cannot help but comment in protest of the practice illustrated in the story, “Running hot” (June 2020) of apparently tossing (live?!) salmon up and over a stationary setnet onto the rocky shoreline. I’m sure I don’t understand the business of commercial fishing, but no animal deserves to be dispatched in such a degrading manner.
