Towed dredges are used to collect shellfish such as scallops from the sea floor.
The dredge used in the Commonwealth scallop fishery is constructed of a heavy steel frame covered with steel mesh but open on the front side which is towed and is used to dig scallops out of the sand and mud.
The dredge is towed along the bottom until it is full, then lifted onto the boat and the contents tipped out.
