Canoes manned by experienced hunters can exploit inshore shoals of fish.

No one can afford to ignore a plentiful food supply, even if gathering it means braving the ocean swell. Sea fishery is a risky undertaking, but one that can feed many. The spearing skills and equipment used by each man are the same as for freshwater fish. Once taken, fish can be smoked or salted to last the long winter months.

Historically the North American tribes did not really have the sailing technology to exploit the vast stocks of sea fish that were to be found off the coast. However, given that the potential of this food source was demonstrated by the Europeans, it is likely they would have exploited it given the chance.
