A Science On The Scales

A Science on the Scales: Canadian Fisheries Biology, 1898-1939
by Jennifer Hubbard

This is a wonderful book about Atlantic fisheries history. My favorite part is Jennifer’s account of the development of marine biological stations around the world, and the events leading up to the establishment of the St. Andrew’s Station in New Brunswick. If you’re interested in rooting the development of fisheries history and how it fits into the wider picture of Victorian science, this is the book for you. It won the North American Society for Oceanic History’s 2006 John Lyman Award for Canadian Naval and Maritime History.
