Traditional fishing, artisanal fishing and small scale fishing image gallery. Traditional fishing is low-technology fishing carried out by coastal people around the world. It generally has less impact than modern fishing methods. This Traditional Fishing image gallery is not intended to show small-scale, artisanal fishers as a major impact on marine environments, rather it records a traditional way of life that is often under threat as limited fish stocks are vacuumed from the ocean by modern factory fishing vessels.
