Fishing has played an important rolein human food gathering for over 35,000 years, but the evolution offishing boats over the last several thousand years has greatly expandedsocieties’ ability to feed themselves and presents the modern world withan important source of healthy nourishment.
Of the 4 million commercial fishingboats sailing the seas today, it is estimated that 1.3 million aremodern, decked craft with enclosed areas and catch storage or processingholds. Two-thirds of the remaining boats are believed to betraditionally powered vessels, including sailboats and rowboats, thatare used by artisan fishers for small scale commercial or subsistencefishing in coastal or island regions, as well as upon rivers and lakes.
Although boats utilized for fishingdate from antiquity as evidenced by ancient Egyptian artwork, until thelate medieval period boats were generally adapted from other purposesrather than being designed specifically to optimize their ability tofunction as commercial fishing craft. With the evolution of efficient, purpose-built fishing boats throughout the Renaissance, by the Age ofSail commercial fishing had become a major industry for many northernEuropean seagoing nations. Fishing fleets consisting of hundreds ofsailing craft might spend weeks at sea, salting their catch for storagein barrels or transferring them to other sailboats for transport back toshore.
Fishing boat designed varied greatlyby nation, region and even individual shipyard as much as by function orintended catch throughout the age of sailboats. During the 1950s, thedesign of mechanized commercial fishing boats increasingly constructedof steel or fiberglass started to become more standardized.

The most commontype is the fishing trawler, which drags large nets hanging from itssides or held open behind the boat as it moves through thewater. Another is the “seiner", or seine net, which deploys a long netto encircle a school of fish before drawing the fishing net tight tocontain them. Tuna, mackerel, skipjack and squid are often fished usinglong lines with baited hooks, which may be extended on poles or boomsfrom the sides and stern of the ship as it cruises slowly through thesea.
