There are many methods of hunting. Techniques differ depending on government regulations, local customs, equipment and the animals being hunted. A combination of techniques are often used in accordance with the law. A few of these methods include baiting, which is the use of scent or food to lure an animal; blind hunting, which is the process of waiting for animals from a hidden or elevated place; camouflage hunting, which is the blending of the hunter into the environment; and dogs, used to track prey.
Fishing is considered different from hunting. Fishing is the pursuit and capture of fish and other aquatic animals such as mollusks and crustaceans. There are mainly two types of fishing, commercial and recreational. Commercial fishing is for profit. The fish are pursued far into the ocean and often under dangerous conditions. A commercial fishing business can range from a single man with a small boat to an enormous fleet that processes tons of fish daily. Commercial fishing uses large nets and sea-going processing factories. The gear includes trawls, dredges, hacks, lift nets, weights, and traps.
Recreational fishing is for sport, fun and competition. The fishers use a rod, reel, line, and hooks. They also use different baits such as artificial flies.
