Map of Ocean Currents (draft)

- Purse seine boats out of Banda Aceh typically have nets that are 1200 meters long by 80 meters deep. When they drop their nets, they put the engine in neutral so they don't wrap the net around the prop. It then takes approximately an hour for the men on board to pull in the net by hand. During this time the boat drifts with the current.
