Fishing is an activity of hunting fish or aquatic animals such as cool
water fish, warm water fish, various types of shellfish as well as squid,
octopus and turtles with a rod, line and hook. It is a popular, ancient
practice involving many techniques and traditions. Also called angling,
fishing originated as a means of seeking food for survival.
Fishing traces its roots back to the Mesolithic period that began about
10,000 years ago. It is the major occupation of many coastal inhabitants.
The catches vary according to the season and fishing place. Basically,
there are three types of fishing - beach, rock fishing, and boat fishing.
The method of fishing varies according to the region, technology
available and species being fished. Fishing tackle, fishing rods, fishing
reels, hooks and fishing lures are commonly used fishing equipment. Some
of the traditional fishing techniques are hand fishing, spear and bow
fishing, kite fishing and dynamite or blast fishing.
Fishing for commercial purposes has become a big business. Trawling,
seining, drift netting, hand lining, long lining, gillnetting and diving
are common commercial fishing techniques. Recreational fishing is mainly
for pleasure or competition and is done with a rod, line and hooks
attached to any of a wide range of lures or baits. Fishing competitions
are organized for fishermen to compete for prizes. Falls River Drainage,
