Until the mid-20th century, fishing boats were largely of local design, with different types found even in adjacent ports. As fishermen started to roam farther afield for their catches, the vessels grew, and with this growth in size came an element of standardization in design. Today, fishing boat design and construction is an international industry, with the different vessel types dictated more by the fishing methods for which they are designed rather than by their port or country of origin.

The establishment of 200-mile fishing limits (see above History of commercial fishing) has altered fishing patterns and, with them, the types of vessels used by many countries. In the United States and Canada, fishing vessels have grown with the introduction of processing or factory trawlers, while the huge fleets of this type of vessel operated by Soviet-bloc countries and Japan have shrunk. In western Europe, compact fishing vessels have been developed with high catching power. The advantage of these smaller vessels is their reduced capital and operating costs.

Steel is the most common construction material, being used exclusively on larger vessels (above 25 metres). Traditional wood construction is less common because of cost and a lack of suitable timber in many areas. The use of fibreglass is increasing in smaller fishing vessels, and it is now used on vessels of up to 25 metres in length. Ferrocement has been used to a certain extent; it is mainly used in the artisanal fisheries of developing countries because, while its construction is labour intensive, its raw materials are cheap.

The aim in all fishing-boat development is to improve efficiency by building vessels that have higher catching power, smaller crews, and reduced operating costs. This development must be matched against safety concerns, as commercial fishing is one of the highest risk industries in the world. Several countries have introduced regulations governing the construction and operation of fishing vessels. The International Maritime Organization, convened in 1959 under the auspices of the United Nations, is responsible for devising international regulations covering such aspects of fishing vessel design as construction, stability, safety equipment, and watertight integrity. These regulations are likely to lead to further standardization in design.
