Cleaner fishing gear saving sea turtles off California

Massive drift gillnets are used to catch swordfish off California and Oregon. Unfortunately, these nets also accidentally entangle and kill a lot of marine wildlife, including turtles and dolphins. But there's a great alternative. Deep-set buoy gear catches swordfish without the unintended consequences.
