Historical perspectives of fisheries exploitation in the Indo-Pacific

Christensen, J. and Tull, M. (eds) (2014) Historical perspectives of fisheries exploitation in the Indo-Pacific. Springer Verlag, Dordrecht, NL.


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.
