About This Quiz

According to some counts, the average number of fish caught each and every year is somewhere between 790 billion and 2.3 trillion give or take a couple hundred billion. You know, nothing major.  That's more fish than you can shake a stick at and a heck of a lot of fish sticks waiting to happen, too. Most of that is commercial fishing, that large-scale industrial sort of thing that involves big nets and bigger boats and is in no way anything like the sport of angling or the relaxation of just sitting in a chair by a lake with a line in the water and a drink in your hand. Ahh, fishing. It can be the most fun you have on a Sunday morning if you let it. It can also be an intense battle between you and nature, or a bonding experience between friends and family. There's a lot more going on when it comes to reeling in a salmon than it seems at first glance.
