  • 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.
