About this book

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. Historical Perspectives of Fisheries Exploitation in the Indo-Pacific, 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 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.
