Seafood menus from Hawaii reflect long-term ocean changes
Phys.Org
The scientists are using the menus as part of a larger project to fill a 45-year gap in official records of wild fish populations in Hawaii’s ocean waters during the mid-20th century.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

Seafood menus are offering scientists a historical picture of fish populations, food preferences, and cultural practices.  Things have changed a lot over the past four decades…I still remember eating sharkfin soup, turtle, and fish now on the endangered list.  Even with conservation efforts and catch limits, many fish are on the endangered list and could be extinct in another 50 years.  Aloha, Russ.
