The Biodiversity Heritage Library: A Treasure Trove of Fishing History.

The Biodiversity Heritage Library is a fantastic online resource with an abundance of historical books, illustrations and scientific exploration spanning hundreds of years. Here you can find some of the most beautiful illustrations of fish, plants, animals, mollusks or most any topic that has to do with Natural History.

We of course, enjoy this library for the Fishing stuff, but you never know where a search will take you! So, here’s a link to get you started on your own exploration of this incredible collection. Enjoy!

And, here’s a short video about how to navigate this immense library.
