Understanding trajectories of change is crucial for marine conservation and management, but systematic data typically only reach back a few decades. Fish bones from archaeological sites represent a rich source of longer-term diachronic data on past populations, on human exploitation, and – crucially – on the relationship between the two. This talk showcases some of the types of data that can be drawn from archaeological remains, and discusses their potential and limitations.
