Fish and fishermen have always played an important role in the provision of food in England and Wales. This complex activity is covered in detail including the curing and preservation of fish, fish farming, boats and gear, catching methods, the social structures of fishing communities, the development of harbours and docks, fish protection, and the Missions to deep-sea fishermen. It brings alive the history of a livelihood now in decline.
