C Predicting the future

Fishermen in Asia and Europe have conscripted the great cormorant and other cormorant species to ply their trade. Commonly a collar or snare is placed around the cormorant’s neck to prevent it from swallowing any large fish. When a cormorant has caught a fish in its throat, the fisherman hauls the bird back and forces it to spit the fish up. Once a widespread practice, it’s now widely regarded as cruel to the birds and has mostly fallen out of practice.

The correct answer to this quiz is Catching fish.
