Give a Man a Dolphin and It Will Bring You Fish

The oldest known evidence of fishing dates back over 40,000 years and provides evidence of humans fishing off the shore in the ocean.   Fish hooks, bones and other fossil evidence have also confirmed that humans have been fishing deep in the sea and even manufacturing implements such as fish hooks to facilitate that trade much earlier than thought.  Hand catching, spearing, netting, trapping and angling are all techniques used to catch fish and other seafood.  Man, even used tame animals like dolphins to help catch fish in ancient times.  At the call of the fisherman, the dolphins would lure the fish toward shore into the waiting nets and be rewarded by the fishermen with treats or bread soaked in wine.  In Brazil, the practice is still in use today.
