Angling is the activity of aiming to catch fish. Fish are typically caught in the wild. Methods for capturing fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and also capturing. Angling may include capturing marine pets other than fish, such as molluscs, cephalopods, crustaceans, and also echinoderms. The term is not typically related to capturing farmed fish, or to marine mammals, such as whales where the term whaling is better suited.

Fishing reports

According to the United Nations FAO data, the total number of commercial anglers and also fish farmers is approximated to be 38 million. Fisheries and also aquaculture give direct and also indirect employment to over 500 million people in creating countries. In 2005, the worldwide per head consumption of fish recorded from wild fisheries was 14.4 kilograms, with an additional 7.4 kilograms gathered from fish ranches. Along with offering food, modern-day angling is likewise a leisure pastime.


Angling is an ancient technique that dates back to at least the start of the Upper Paleolithic duration about 40,000 years earlier. Isotopic analysis of the skeletal remains of Tianyuan male, a 40,000-year-old modern-day human from eastern Asia, has revealed that he on a regular basis ate freshwater fish. Archaeology attributes such as covering middens, discarded fish bones, and also cavern paintings show that sea foods were important for survival and also consumed in considerable quantities.

Throughout this duration, lots of people lived a hunter-gatherer way of life and also were, of need, continuously on the move. Nonetheless, where there are early instances of long-term settlements (though not always permanently occupied) such as those at Lepenski Vir, they are usually associated with angling as a major source of food.

Trawling

The British dogger was an earlier type of sailing trawler from the 17th century, but the modern fishing trawler was developed in the 19th century, at the English fishing port of Brixham. By early 19th century, the fishermen at Brixham needed to expand their fishing area further than previously due to the ongoing depletion of stocks that has been occurring in the overfished waters of South Devon. The Brixham trawler that evolved there is of a smooth build and had a high gaff rig, which gave the vessel sufficient speed to make cross country trips out to the fishing grounds in the ocean. These were also sufficiently robust to be able to tow huge trawls in deep sea. The truly amazing trawling fleet that accumulated at Brixham, received the village the title of'Mother of Deep-sea Fisheries.

This extremely models made huge scale trawling in the sea possible for the very first time, causing a massive movement of fishermen from the ports in the South of England, to villages further north, such as for example Scarborough, Hull, Grimsby, Harwich and Yarmouth, which were points of access to the large fishing place in the Atlantic deep water.

The small village of Grimsby grew to become the largest fishing port on earth by the mid 19th century. An Act of Parliament was obtained in 1796, which authorised the construction of new quays and dredging of the Haven to make it deeper. It was just in the 1846, with the tremendous expansion in the fishing industry, that the Grimsby Dock Company was formed. The foundation stone for the Royal Dock was laid by Albert the Prince consort in 1849. The dock covered 25 acres (10 ha) and was formally opened by Queen Victoria in 1854 as the first modern fishing port.



The amazing Brixham trawler wide spread along the world, influencing fishing fleets anywhere. By the finish of the 19th century, there were over 3,000 fishing trawlers in commission in Britain, with nearly 1,000 at Grimsby. These trawlers were sold to fishermen around Europe, including from the Netherlands and Scandinavia. Twelve trawlers continued to create the nucleus of the German fishing fleet.

The first steam powered fishing boats first appeared in the 1870s and used the trawl system of fishing as well as lines and drift nets. They were large boats, usually 80–90 feet (24–27 m) long with a beam of around 20 feet (6.1 m). They weighed 40-50 tons and travelled at 9–11 knots (17–20 km/h; 10–13 mph). The first purpose built fishing vessels were designed and produced by David Allan in Leith, Scotland in March 1875, when he converted a drifter to steam power. In 1877, he built the first screw propelled steam trawler in the world.

Steam trawlers were introduced at Grimsby and Hull in the 1880s. In 1890 it was estimated that there were 20,000 men on the North Sea. The steam drifter was not found in the herring fishery until 1897. The last sailing fishing trawler was built-in 1925 in Grimsby. Trawler designs adapted as the direction they were powered changed from sail to coal-fired steam by World War I to diesel and turbines by the finish of World War II.

In 1931, the first powered drum was created by Laurie Jarelainen. The drum was a round device that has been set to the side of the boat and would draw in the nets. Since World War II, radio navigation aids and fish finders have now been widely used. The first trawlers fished over the medial side, rather than within the stern. The first purpose built stern trawler was Fairtry built-in 1953 at Aberdeen, Scotland. The ship was much larger than any trawlers then functioning and inaugurated the era of the'super trawler '. As the ship pulled its nets within the stern, it might lift out a much greater haul as high as 60 tons. The ship served as a basis for the expansion of'super trawlers'all over the world in the next decades.
