30 Found Photos of People Proudly Posing With Fishes in the 1960s

Fishing is an ancient practice that dates back to at least the beginning of the Upper Paleolithic period about 40,000 years ago, and became a popular recreational activity in the 19th century.

Since the 16th century, fishing vessels have been able to cross oceans in pursuit of fish, and since the 19th century it has been possible to use larger vessels and in some cases process the fish on board. Fish are normally caught in the wild. Techniques for catching fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping.

The term fishing may be applied to catching other aquatic animals such as shellfish, cephalopods, crustaceans and echinoderms. The term is not usually applied to catching aquatic mammals, such as whales, where the term whaling is more appropriate, or to farmed fish.

These vintage photos were found by Mark Susina that captured people proudly posing with fishes in the 1960s.
