OzCast: Fishing heritage in Australia

ON this episode of OzCast, renowned historian Anna Clark goes through the history of fishing in Australia, from the first accounts of fishing pre-European settlement, through to the monumental events and encounters that shaped the sport we now know today.

Anna has been able to trace records back to the 1700s and walks us through what it used to be like. She debunks the misconception that James Cook was the first foreign fisherman in Australia with neighbours from our near north making annual pilgrimages well before the English captain sighted Botany Bay on board The Endeavour in 1770.
