The suggestion is that instead of fish, the fisherman himself has been caught in the net.
A giant squid shocked the fisherman who caught it in his net off the coast of Vancouver Island.

There are several different varieties and are a favourite of sport fishermen in those areas.
There seemed to be no sense at all in importing supplies our own fishermen should have been catching.
