This book provides a lot of information on the importance of fishing in ancient Hawaiian society. It includes drawings of fish with both Hawaiian and scientific names.
"The early Hawaiians were master catchers of fish and knew the habits of most of the fish in Hawaiian waters. They were also known for their conservation practices based on spawning cycles, their aquaculture expertise, and the preparation of seafood into tasty dishes [...] This book is a complete dissertation on what the Hawaiians knew about Hawaii's seafood resources, how they went about collecting them for food, and how they prepared them for human consumption."
