View of Section 4, dedicated to the development of fishing techniques.

In Catalonia there are different fishing methods adapted to the target species and the habitat they live in, whether near the land or at a great depth. Each system involves specific techniques and tools. The crews of the boats also vary between one and twenty men, each with his own tasks to fulfil.

In the Costa Brava techniques such as drag-encirclement and line fishing were used. Throughout the 20th century, important technological changes took place, and the almost instinctive practice of fishing from a sail boat has become a very technologically sophisticated task.
