The subject of Fishing and Fisheries is depicted in middle to late 20th century literature at a time when governmental regulation of maritime borders became the means of controlling international fishing of coastal waters. Interest in historical fishing, whaling, fishing techniques of other countries, the lives of fishermen, fishing vessels and equipment was notable from the1930s, with most technical works and conference proceedings published between the 1960s and 1980s. Books from the Library’s collections on Fishing and Fisheries are only partially represented here.
