A graphic account of the development of the British fisheries through the medieval period and into the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is given. The themes and issues that family and local historians will need to understand in order to pursue their research are a key part of the study. The reader is introduced to the variety of national and local records that are available for genealogical research and considers the many other resources that can yield fascinating information about the industry and those who worked in it.
