'nuta' is well fitting with Swedish 'not' and 'nät' and the word'nota'
for fishing with a not is quite possible to fit into modern Swedish
but is not used as far as I know -one use 'kasta (throw) or dra (pull)
not'. Also a net can be thrown but 'näta' is a less probable
construction nowadays but still logical and theoretically possible.
Hence I support it means fishing with net.
