Brings together the case studies completed through the History of Marine Animal Populations (HMAP) initiative
Breaks new ground in the study of marine environmental history and historical marine ecology
Adds fresh Indo-Pacific perspectives to the environmental history of the Earth’s seas
Topics include shark fishing, whaling, tuna fisheries, historical turtle fisheries, commercial steam trawling and more
The waters of the Indo-Pacific were at the centre of the global expansion of marine capture fisheries in the twentieth century, yet surprisingly little has been written about this subject from a historical perspective. This book, the first major study of the history of fishing in Asia and Oceania, presents the case-studies completed through the History of Marine Animal Populations (HMAP) initiative. It examines the marine environmental history and historical marine ecology of the Indo-Pacific during a period that witnessed the dramatic escalation of industrial fishing in these seas.
