The goal of the Release Nemo! is to make commercial fishing more sustainable by significantly decreasing the numbers of non-target and juvenile fish caught during the trawling process.
This design tackle the problem of holes in a net becoming narrow during trawling when under tension. Many small fish are unable to escape, or are severely injured in the process. Escape Gate hold the meshes open, and a simple light ring acts as an emergency exit sign. Lights make the Gates more visible and also stimulate fish escape reactions, guiding them out. The Escape Rings can be removed and fitted to the new one by fishmen.
