The act of catching fish in various ways is known as fishing. Commercial fishing entails catching and selling fish. Capturing fish for personal consumption or for the fun of catching fish is referred to as recreational fishing. Recreationally caught fish are either eaten or released by the person who caught them; they are not sold.

6. Bird Watching

Uttarakhand is home to over 600 kinds of birds, making it one of the most diverse bird-watching destinations in India. Birders from all over the world flock to this location. Many birds are migratory; in fact, nearly half of the species found in India can only be found in Uttarakhand.

Bird watching is one of the most popular wildlife observation recreation activities. Avid birdwatchers listen for bird noises to spot and document numerous types of birds, as many bird species are easier to recognise and identify by ear than by sight. In Uttarakhand, bird watching can be done with the naked eye or with the aid of visual aids such as binoculars or telescopes.
