D. 1200–1500. Copyright Magdalena and Andrzej Antczak. However, few human populations have been so dependent on mollusks for food to cause local or species extinctions (Bailey & Milner 2008). The study of megamollusks is particularly rewarding for our understanding of human values and trade. The queen conch was heavily targeted between about 1100 and 1500 at the offshore islands of Los Roques, Venezuela, and both the meat and shells were brought to the mainland for consumption and redistribution.
6 Southwest Africa Human activities were studied in the Benguela Current ecosystem (Griffiths et al. 2005). Like the southeast Australian fisheries, the main human impact occurred relatively recently, but is unfortunately less well documented. The aboriginal epoch until 1652 was characterized by low levels of mainly intertidal exploitation, whereas the pre-industrial epoch to about 1910 saw intense exploitation of few large, accessible species. The introduction of mechanized technology marked the beginning of the industrial epoch which had a huge increase in landings.
2008). Human hunting tends to focus on top predators as the big fish are of highest commercial value. When we take out the largest specimens, we remove one of the controls on the ecosystem. The mature fish are also highly important for the reproduction of the population as their eggs have been shown to be healthier and more plentiful than the spawn of younger and smaller specimens Chapter 1 Marine Animal Populations: A New Look Back in Time (O’Brien 1999). Because the fish continues to grow through its entire life, a decline in the length of specimen caught is a clear indication that the fishery is changing the age structure and viability of the stock.
