It is a pre-historic practice dating back at least 40,000 years.
Since the 16th century fishing vessels have been able to cross oceans in pursuit of fish and since the 19th century it has been possible to use larger vessels and in some cases process the fish on board. Techniques for catching fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping.
In addition to providing food, modern fishing is also a recreational sport.
According to FAO statistics, the total number of fishermen and fish farmers is estimated to be 38 million.
