Fishing is the act of catching fish or other aquatic animals, such as shellfish or crustaceans, for food, sport, or commercial purposes. Fishing has been an important activity throughout human history, and it is still widely practiced around the world today.

Fishing can take many different forms, depending on the species of fish being targeted, the environment, and the purpose of the fishing. Some common fishing methods include:

  • Angling: Using a fishing rod, reel, and bait to catch fish from a stationary position, such as on the shore or on a boat.
  • Trawling: Dragging a large net behind a boat to catch fish in open water.
  • Seining: Using a large net to encircle a school of fish and then hauling in the net.
  • Spearfishing: Using a specialized spear or harpoon to catch fish underwater.
  • Trapping: Setting up a trap, such as a lobster trap, to catch fish or other aquatic animals.

Fishing can have both positive and negative impacts on the environment and on fish populations. Overfishing, or catching more fish than can be sustainably replenished, can lead to declines in fish populations and other negative environmental consequences. However, sustainable fishing practices, such as catch-and-release fishing and fishing with regulated quotas, can help ensure that fish populations remain healthy while still allowing for fishing activities.

Fishing can also have important economic and cultural significance, providing food and livelihoods for millions of people around the world and serving as a traditional activity and source of recreation for many communities.
