Mankind relies heavily on fish for sustenance in many parts of the world and it is a major part of the world’s diet.

Before Europeans arrived in North America, the fish populations were pretty much in balance and fish were harvested as food by all the native populations. Baskets, nets, weirs and spears, as well as hook and line, were used to give the tribes food for the table. After the Europeans came, the fish in certain areas became depleted and some fish became extinct.
