      The southwest Alaska sea otter population is listed as threatened under the Endangered Species and designated as depleted under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Threats Competition with commercial shellfish fisheries, entanglement in commercial fishing gear, oil spills, disease outbreaks, contaminants, subsistence harvests, killer whale predation. English examples for "otter-trawl" - It will be noted that the number of otter-trawl fares from this ground is small. In the otter-trawl catch from this ground it will be noted that the positions of the two species are reversed. The proportion of cod taken here by these vessels is very small, even smaller than that from other grounds fished by the otter-trawl method.

    The otter trawl was introduced into New England in when the vessel Spray was so successful that in the next few years other vessels became otter trawlers. Like the European trawlers, the New England vessels were large steamers which landed the net along side (usually starboard) by the use of a fore gallows and a similar one aft. The sea otter is very different from the other otters since it spends the majority of its time in salt water and is perfectly content to float around the kelp beds.
