The purse seine is an example of a surrounding net. Here any salmon swimming near the surface are surrounded with a wall of netting, supported by floats.

A surrounding net is a fishing net which surrounds fish and other aquatic animals on the sides and underneath. It is typically used by commercial fishers, and pulled along the surface of the water. There is typically a purse line at the bottom, which is closed when the net is hauled in.
