Mr Monkey on the trawler Amandine, August 28th

"It's a very useful thing, your otter board"

On the deck, Mr Monkey inspected the otter boards that hold the net open (if you throw them into the water, of course), and remembered the film in the exhibition showing fishermen actually standing out above the waves to launch an otter board. He decided that he'd prefer to be up on the bridge, so he swarmed up the nearest ladder.

You can read about fishing gear at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations website.
