‘Fishing for the Past: Casting nets and lines into Australia’s early colonial history’
March 23 - March 23 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Presented by Dr Julian Pepperell
Julian Pepperell draws on his life’s work as a fish biologist and fisheries scientist to tease out the earliest written and visual accounts of fishing around the Australian coast by the first Dutch, English and French explorers.
Hear how, prior to European arrival, Aboriginal people had been fishing Australian coastal waters for tens of thousands of years with spears, hooks, nets and traps and gathering shellfish from the beaches, rocks and reefs.
