									?Small Fishing Boats - Uses And Varieties
A small fishing boat---is a pretty generalized term for the vessels that
range from a variety of types of boats. Some include in their folds the
small canoes or kayaks sailing in the Amazon or vast regions of South
Asian coasts to gigantic, well-equipped fishing trawlers that operate on
the seacoasts of developed economies like Japan.
These days you can find a variety of fishing boats that serve unique
purposes. Whether it be fishing in particular places such as sea, lakes,
rivers or other entrapments, there is always a need for a boat. The
small, light weight boats are not only used for fishing alone; they are
also used for recreations and fishing tournaments. While the specialized
fish catching vessels are the interest of commercial fishing operators,
the amateur and part time fishermen look for the small fishing boats.
• These small fishing boats are ideal for the fishing in relatively
shallow waters, often in sight of land.
• Just like the huge fishing vessels, the small fishing boats also
require constant navigation and communication.
• Naturally these boats comprise a small crew—not more than two in most
of cases. All aspects of the fishing operation are carried on by this
small crew. From placing the net to finally gathering the catches---all
jobs are done by these one or two crew members.
• The fishermen in small fishing boats use a wide variety of hand-
operated equipment such as nets, tongs, rakes, hoes, hooks, and shovels.
All this equipment is used to gather fish and shellfish; catch
amphibians, reptiles, frogs and turtles. The small fishing boats
sometimes even engage in harvesting marine vegetation such as Irish moss
and kelp.
