4. RETREAT MANEUVER

The backdown maneuver is performed to release dolphins that might be trapped inside the net-formed circumference. Once the bag is formed with the net, the vessel moves forward and with this strength, the opposite part of the net sinks allowing the dolphins to escape easier, along with crew divers assistance.
