lift net
(English) Net consisting of a horizontal netting panel or a bag shaped like a parallel pipe, pyramid or cone with the opening facing upwards. After being submerged at the required depth, the net is lifted or hauled out of the water, by hand or mechanically, from the shore or from a boat.

Après avoir été immergé à la profondeur voulue, le filet est relevé ou viré hors de l'eau, à la main ou mécaniquement, à partir du rivage ou à bord. Les poissons qui se trouvent au dessus du filet y sont retenus lorsque l'eau s'en écoule.
