Trawling: destructive fishing method is turning sea floors to 'deserts'
May 29, 2014 01:30 PM - Morgan Erickson-Davis

Bottom trawling is a practice used by commercial fisheries around the world in which a large, heavy net is dragged along the ocean floor to scoop up everything in its path. Previous research has linked trawling to significant environmental impacts, such as the harvest of large numbers of non-target species, collectively termed "by catch," as well as destruction of shallow seabeds. Now, a new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds this method is also resulting in long-term, far-reaching consequences in the deeper ocean and beyond. Trawling dates back to the 1300s, and it became widespread in coastal areas around the world after the industrialization of commercial fishing in the late-1800s. Bottom trawling targets commercially valuable species that live near the sea floor, such as cod, rockfish, and various kinds of squid and shrimp. Gear varies depending on the fishing outfit, but nets can be nearly as large as a city block and scoop thousands of fish and other marine animals in a single drag.

A partir de sus inicios de operación en 1934, después de la derogación de la Ley Seca, La Destilería Heaven Hill ubicada en Louisville, Kentucky se ha convertido en la mayor propiedad familiar produciendo, operando y comercializando licores destilados en la nación. Embotellando más de 12 millones de cajas de bebidas en 2012, se podría imaginar la cantidad de materiales sobrantes que bien podrían ir a un vertedero o ser reciclados. Afortunadamente, La Destilería Heaven Hill decidió probar el reciclaje como parte de su membresía en KY EXCEL. KY EXCEL es un programa voluntario y gratuito de liderazgo medioambiental abierto a individuos, comunidades y organizaciones que deseen mejorar y proteger el medio ambiente de Kentucky en formas que van más allá de los requisitos del estado de Kentucky.

Beginning operation in 1934 after the repeal of Prohibition, Heaven Hill Distilleries located in Bardstown, Kentucky has become the largest family-owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the nation. Bottling over 12 million cases of spirits in 2012, one could imagine the amounts of leftover materials that could either go to a landfill or be recycled. Fortunately, Heaven Hill decided to try recycling as part of their KY EXCEL membership. KY EXCEL is Kentucky's free, voluntary environmental leadership program open to individuals, communities, and organizations that wish to improve and protect Kentucky's environment in ways that extend beyond state requirements. Kim Harmon, the Environmental Compliance Manager at the distillery, says, "When we started our recycling program in 2011, we tried to find everything that could be recycled and vendors to take the materials. We recycle paper labels, bands around pallets, aerosol cans, brown paper packing, blue drums, label backing, cardboard, plastic and glass."
