David J. Starkey and Michael Haines analysis the qualitative and quantitative material held in English archives, pertaining to the fisheries of Newfoundland between 1500-1900. Their results indicate that fish harvesting through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries fluctuated wildly but increased in general. They conclude by suggesting that greater research into the archives will provide a clearer study of the impact of fishing on the fish population of Newfoundland
