The aim of the meeting is to get-together researchers involved in the study of fish exploitation in the past from different scientific disciplines and to encourage both formal and informal interactions.
Located between different aquatic habitats the meeting will travel between the Mediterranean Sea, Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) and the Red Sea. We will go to local fish markets and archaeological sites where fish remains were recovered (Gesher Benot Ya'aqov, Ohalo, Tel-Dor, Caesarea, City of David, Masada, Timna etc.).
The meeting will include a visit to the National Natural History Collections housed at the Edmond J. Safra, Givat Ram Campus of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem; to the Israel Museum, Jerusalem; to the Aquarium at the Coral World-Eilat; to the Dolphin Reef-Eilat; and to the Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research institution in Eilat.
