Fishing inspector / device

Fishing inspector

Some fishers use fishing nets with too small meshes to catch more fesh for benefits,but for they have caught all the young fish,some fish populations have plummeted or even endangered.The diameter of this spherical device is equal to the minimum diameter of the legal fishing net.So it can pass through the nets of legal fishing nets,but will be salvaged by illegal fishing nets.A group of the devices are put into the fishing areas(about 2-3 per square kilometer),if one of them is caught,it will send signals and the position to the regulatory department so that the regulatory department can investigate whether the fisher is illegal fishing.
