This history of fishing combines digital material from many sources to illustrate how humankind around the world has used fish to feed and sustain itself over thousands of years.

From spear, net and trap to farm and factory ship, this lavishly illustrated ebook uses antiquarian prints, paintings and photographs to show how the use of drying and salting has developed over thousands of years, helping preserve fish both to eat and to trade.

It also acknowledges that fish stocks globally must be preserved and protected from over-fishing, that environmental pollution has to stop, and that fishing must be undertaken in a sustainable way.
