Evidence Concerning Fishing in
Antiquity and Its Later Influence


Dr. Michele Valerie Ronnick

The history of the pursuit of fish for fun and profit in western civilization owes much to the Greek and the Romans. Dr. Ronnick will look at their methods of catching and farming fish, as well as the culture that grew up around their consumption as food. She shall then point out elements of this piscatorial heritage upon England and America in the 17th and 18th centuries.
