Definition of Term

(English) Spanish for lamp. Similar to, but much smaller than, a purse seine with no pursing action. This net is generally used for catching artificial light attracted schools of small fish such as anchovy and pilchard. There is a central spoon-shaped section and two lateral wings and the net is usually operated from a small boat. The rapid retrieval of the lead line does close the bottom of the net but it is not a true purse. (See also: purse seine, seine, Anchovies)
