    Trawling = fishing by pulling bait (or possibly nets??) from a moving boat.

    Bottom fishing = fishing on the bottom (and has other metaphorical meanings too).

    Generally, you don't trawl on the bottom because you tend to get caught on things and lose your tackle.

    So far as I know.

    Like an arrestable offence.

    Gmartinez - you need to give a bit more context - describing "fishing bottom trawling" by "bottom trawling which is fishing" doesn't help much!;)

    Hi Gmartinez,

    The correct phrase is 'bottom-trawl fishing'' - trawlers go out with their nets lowered and dragging across the sea bed. They are fishing for the flat fish which feed there, fish like plaice, sole, flounder, turbot and halibut.

    This practice causes serious damage to the oceans' ecology.
