    • 1891, Samuel Wilmot, “Salmon Fisheries of the Bay des Chaleurs”, in Part II of Supplement No. 1 to the Annual Report of the Department of Fisheries 1890, Brown Chamberlin (publisher), page 30:
      In England and in Scotland, after centuries of experience, the netter has been so restricted in the use of the destructive engines which were formerly in use there that at the present time many of the more important rivers continue to uphold almost their original standard of fish,—thus actually benefiting the tidal fisherman, the rivers' proprietors, and all concerned.
    • 2004, Cristiana S. Seixas and Fikret Berkes, “Stakeholder Conflicts and Solutions across Political Scales: the Ibiraquera Lagoon, Brazil”, chapter eight of Leontine E. Visser (editor), Challenging Coasts: Transdisciplinary Excursions into Integrated Coastal Zone Development, Amsterdam University Press, ISBN 978-90-5356-682-4, page 190:
      The conflict between gill-netters and cast-netters has existed at least since the 1940s. The conflict is about resource allocation since gill-netters, who are only a few in number, capture much more resources with less human effort than the large majority of fishers who use cast nets.
  2. An Internet user.
