Sea Fisheries

  • R. V. Tait

Abstract

Even with the refinements of modern science and technology, fishing remains an essentially primitive method of obtaining food. In our exploitation of the fish stocks of the sea, we still behave mainly as nomadic hunters or trappers of natural populations of animals living in the wild state. There are broadly three ways of capturing fish: they may be scooped out of the water by means of a bag of fishnet such as a trawl or seine; they may be enticed to bite upon a baited hook attached to a fishing line; or they may be snared or entangled in some form of trap such as a gill-net. In whaling and swordfishing the quarry is pursued and speared with a harpoon.
