Zum Inhalt

Over the course of the twentieth century, fisheries and fish processing became highly industrialized. Fish Fingers and other deep-frozen fish products account for more than a third of the total market share of fish for consumption in Germany today. Such frozen and processed products are emblematic of the industrialization and mechanization of fisheries and fish-processing.

Industrialization fundamentally changed the fisheries themselves and had a profound impact as well on the processing industries, various supply industries, labor conditions, economic patterns, stock management, consumer culture, and the reception of the oceans and coastal culture among others.

The papers in this volume provide a scholarly historical analysis of some of the most relevant elements of these changes over the last century and contribute to the understanding of how traditional small scale fisheries were transformed in the emergence of the major industrial fisheries sector.

The papers were presented originally at the tenth North Atlantic Fisheries History Association (NAFHA) conference in Bremerhaven in 2006. Historians from around the North-Atlantic discussed recent research findings at the German Maritime Museum at the international conference held concurrently with a special exhibition on Fish Fingers at the museum.

The papers are offered to promote a better understanding of the complex interaction of human activities and the world oceans and especially of the limited biological resource of fish. They are intended, hopefully, to stimulate further interest in the study of these topics that form part of our understanding of the globalizing economy today.
