The large-scale research of ancient fishing showed what fish the person regularly ate


In a research the fish bones found on archeological excavations on the Indonesian island Alor where found the most ancient fishing hooks age about 12 thousand years were studied.

Scientific of the Australian national university led by doctor Sofya Samper Carro (Sofia Samper Carro) said that they during the research revealed shift in fishing methods about 7 thousand years ago. Work is published in Journal of Archaeological Science.

"Inhabitants of the island Alor fished in open waters about 20 thousand years ago, and then only those species of fish which lived in reeves began to catch about 7 thousand years ago. The similar picture is observed on the neighboring island of Timor that demonstrates that change in behavior of people was caused by ecological circumstances. It seems that it is connected with change of sea level and environmental conditions though it is impossible to exclude also anthropogenic changes", - it is sure Samper Carro.

At first in a research was used the analysis method, traditional for biology, allowing to define habitats of fish based on archaeological data. According to scientists, they had to experiment with approach because of difficulty of identification of bones of 2 thousand known species of fish as the majority of the found bones are vertebras which are very similar among themselves.
