People have been fishing for thousands of years. But the methods used have changed greatly over the centuries.
Large boats like the one in this illustration are used in commercial fishing. Much of the fish you buy in the grocery store - from canned tuna to steamy snow crab legs - comes from fishing boats like this one.
Fishing boats use large nets to capture hundreds or even thousands of fish. Some boats are floating factories, getting the fish ready to be sold at the grocery store before the ship even reaches land.
