But in cultures where fishing is central to the way of life, the crafting of fish hooks is elevated to a form of art.Fish Hooks of the Pacific Islands brings together the finest specimens from private collections all over the world. Included are more than three hundred newly commissioned photographs showing over six hundred fish hooks at their actual size, accompanied by details on their features and provenance. This is the first comprehensive catalog of Pacific Island fish hooks in more than eighty years, and it brings together vast amounts of new information, including recent discoveries and updated research.

First published in 1989. The Pacific Islands are amongst the poorest countries of the developing world. The special problems of their small size, immense distance from major centres and, for many, very poor agricultural possibilities make development extremely difficult. However, recent new advances in maritime technology in a wide range of different areas present substantial new opportunities. This book surveys the new developments — including extended maritime boundaries; giant clam farming; increased exploitation of ocean minerals and new fisheries techniques — and demonstrates the potential for far-reaching economic and social development.
