History

The never-ending quest for food eventually enticed humans out onto lakes, rivers, and oceans in search of fish. Fish of greater size and variety, and fish in greater quantity were often found in deeper off-shore waters. Fishing ships, larger than small canoes, were developed to control larger nets. Fishing ships were able to hold greater quantities of processed fish (cleaned and salted at sea) before return to land was required.
