local.seafdecaqd.extractSindhudurg, India - The fishermen were dubious when ocean experts suggested they could save their dwindling marine stocks just by switching to new nets. It took years for the UN Development Program to convince the fishing communities along India's tropical western coast that the diamond-mesh were using were trapping baby fish, while a square-shaped mesh could allow small fish to escape to maintain a breeding population. But two years after the new nets were fully adopted, fishermen insist they're making a difference.en
