Types of Fishing

 Although there are many types of catching fish, they fall into three groups

1. Catching fish singly or in schools by use of nets or spears 

2. Trapping fish in stationary gear, such as fish traps or set nets 

3. Attracting fish to get caught on hooks by use of bait, artificial lures or other means such as light 

Before you go fishing you must choose what's the best type to use.  Factors include:
  • where you are fishing?
  • what species you are fishing for?
  • the weather and sea conditions?
  • the cost of the boat, gear and fuel?
  • the market requirements?

Activity 3 -  Click on the link below and then read the article on How Waves are Made. After you have read the article, write down five facts about How Waves are Made.

* Waves are a product of the wind.
*The best waves for surfing are the result of the interaction of winds on the surface of the ocean, far away from the coast.
*Wind is the first step in the formation of surf able waves.
*Local shore winds can also produce waves, but they can also destroy the quality of the breaking waves.

*Onshore winds are typically known for creating choppy and bumpy waves because their effect is added to the direction of the wave.
