    Yes, commercial fisherman, mostly in the US, Japan, and Spain, still use the long line fishing technique. According to the Humane Society:

    “Some estimates claim that longlines kill more than 40,000 sea turtles, 300,000 seabirds, thousands of marine mammals and millions of sharks each year.”
