Fishing represents the action of hunting for fish. This activity Dominic Solanke Shirt , along with hunting, is performed by the human kind since ancient times. In addition, it is important to know that this activity has been practiced all over the world. The goal is mainly to catch fish, but the term has been extended. In our times, it also refers to hunting for shellfish, octopus, squid, frogs, turtles and other invertebrates.
In ancient times, this activity was performed for assuring the existence of food. In our times, fishing is also a sport, a recreational activity and even more, an activity performed for commercial purposes. The traditions might be preserved in several regions around the globe. The techniques, however, have improved considerably. Fishing hooks created from bone that date from Stone Age were discovered. In addition, fishing has been represented in art. As evidence of this fact stand statues, paintings and references in literature. For the ancient Greeks fishing played a vital role. The fact that Poseidon is one of the greatest ancient gods sustains this.
The fishing techniques that have been used throughout centuries include: hand fishing, spear and bow fishing, dredging, kite fishing, ice fishing, eletrofishing, blast fishing and squirrel fishing. In some cases, people were putting poisonous plants into the water, so the fish is easier to catch. According to some sources, some of the plants paralyzed the fish, while others absorbed oxygen from water. This technique is called cyanide fishing.
Spear fishing implied the use of a spear or of a trident. This was used particularly in South and Midwest America. It seemed to be very effective in shallow waters. In more recent times, the speargun has been created. This gun eases a lot this technique.
Dredging involves a scoop-like dredge created from chain mesh. This practice is not permitted anymore because the coral bed, as well as the seabed, is destroyed by the dredge that is very heavy.
Fishing with fishing lines is probably the most popular technique. At the end of the fishing line is a hook in which bait is put. Other technique based on fishing line is called long-line fishing. This involves hundreds or in some cases even thousands of hooks with bait fixed along the line.
Blast fishing and electrofishing are two dangerous fishing techniques that are not allowed because they damage the surroundings. Dynamite, which was used for blast fishing, used to destroy the other organisms in the water, as well as the environment.

Japan on Monday marked three years before the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with celebrations and fanfare - even as organizers struggle to contain soaring costs and restore credibility.

Japanese celebrities and athletes dressed in bright kimonos gathered for the launch of a remake of a popular 1964 Tokyo Games song, as organizers promised to turn the 2020 Games into the biggest "natsu matsuri" (summer festival) ever.

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, clad in a white traditional Japanese "happi" coat, attended a flag ceremony at the city hall.

"We have only three years left," Koike said at the evening event at which cutting-edge projection mapping illustrating Tokyo was shown.

"I hope to lead the Olympic Games to success with all of you," she told the audience.

The International Olympic Committee, fearful that ballooning budgets could see future Olympic bids dry up, last month praised local organizers for slashing costs.

Koike last year ordered a review of the budget which recommended revised plans to reduce costs projected to rise to more than $25 billion - four times the initial estimates when Tokyo won the 2020 hosting rights.

Tokyo organizers have since slashed costs to around $13 billion but have otherwise largely failed to inspire confidence since the city beat Madrid and Istanbul in its bid to host the Games for a second time.

Progress on the financial front comes after a rocky start when the initial rollout of the centerpiece Olympic stadium was bungled, forcing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2015 to tear up the blueprints amid public anger over its price tag. A new and cheaper plan was unveiled later that year.

More embarrassment followed when the original Games logo was scrapped following allegations of plagiarism.

But the focus on Monday was on building up enthusiasm for Tokyo's hosting of the Games.

Other events held across -Japan included a 1,000--kilometer running and cycling relay from the northern prefecture of Aomori to Tokyo.

The route took in areas hit by the deadly 2011 tsunami and the event featured 2000 Sydney Games marathon champion Naoko Takahashi at the start.

A surfing exhibition by pros took place at the Tsurigasaki beach venue in Chiba - 40 kilometers southeast of Tokyo - where the sport will make its Olympic debut in 2020.

BANGKOK, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) -- Most tourists to Thailand have not considered martial law, currently enforced nationwide, as an obstacle to their visits to the southeast Asian country, reported an opinion poll on Tuesday.

According to Bangkok University's poll recently carried out with 1,044 visiting foreigners, 70 percent of the respondents said they had not viewed martial law, imposed since the May 22 military coup which deposed an elected government, as a deterrent to their decisions to travel to Thailand, compared to 30 percent who considered otherwise.

Most made up their mind to travel to this country with intention to see and admire its culture, arts and traditions, followed by 17 percent who had intended to see its tropical seas and islands and stay at beach resorts, according to the poll.

Martial law had been earlier speculated to be lifted at world- renowned tourist spots, such as Pattaya, Phuket and Samui island which had apparently remained intact from political unrest though it would remain effective in all other par.
