The British Fisheries Society 1786-1893 by Jean Dunlop

An account of the history of the Society founded in 1786 with the support of Parliament and public-spirited leaders. The Society created new communities in remote areas, experimented with farming methods, built roads and organised a series of fishing villages at Ullapool, Tobermory, Lochbay in Skye and Pulteneytown in Caithness.
