English term or phrase:thermal vents
The result is pure waste – the destruction without benefit of any kind of the very resources on which the fishery depends for its future. If, on the other hand, they catch lots of marketable fish, but do so only by dragging nets weighed down by heavy metal bars through fragile ecosystems, such as coral reefs or thermal vents, then they may unwittingly destroy the irreplaceable environment which nurtures the fish stocks on which they themselves depend.
A hydrothermal vent is a fissure in a planet's surface from which geothermally heated water issues. Hydrothermal vents are commonly found near volcanically active places, areas where tectonic plates are moving apart, ocean basins, and hotspots.
[...] Under the sea, hydrothermal vents may form features called black smokers.
