With the new season of Deadliest Catch I find myself looking at (and more interested in) the finfish that come up as bicatch in the traps more than the crab.So far I've seen cod, Pacific halibut, pollock and an eel-like fish (lamprey?).
What other species might one expect to see as bycatch crabbing the Bering Sea?

Aren't lampreys a fresh water fish?  Maybe hagfish?

OK wrong again, damn I better go bakc to school.  wikipedia says:

"Lampreys live mostly in coastal and fresh waters, although at least one species, Geotria australis, probably travels significant distances in the open ocean, as evidenced by the lack of reproductive isolation between Australian and New Zealand"

I read last year there was a bycatch of over a half million king salmon in the pollock industry. I think it was Pollock, I know it was the fast food industry. Thats Sacramento fish. Something is happening to them out there thats for sure.

I bet some of the industrial fishing ops could give a shit between catch and bycatch

It's all fish and it's all money

The Gulf Coast shrimp trawlers catch 5lbs of bycatch for every 1lb of shrimp.
