Tuna Sketch


ink in sketchbook

Today's theme for #SundayFishSketch are 'anthropologically important fishes.' One of the first articles that I came upon when looking into this was one from about ten years ago. It is now believed that early man fished in the open sea far earlier than previously thought, as far back as 42,000 years. In a cave in East Timor scientists discovered the oldest fish hooks ever found (I drew them much bigger than they were) in a cave that also had remains of tuna and other fish. These hooks were made from bone and didn't say what they used as bait, but as discovered, they were successful at fishing.
