Seafood menus from Hawaii reflect long-term ocean changes
Date:8/5/2013

ce of reef fish from menus paralleled drops in their wild abundance.

"The menus provide demand-side evidence suggesting inshore fish were in steep decline," Van Houtan said.

The researchers hope their study will increase opportunities and attention for similar historical analyses elsewhere.

"Historical ecology typically focuses on supply-side information," said Loren McClenachan, assistant professor of environmental studies at Colby College in Maine and co-author of the study. "Restaurant menus are an available but often overlooked source of information on the demand side; they document seafood consumption, availability and even value over time."

"Most of the menus in our study came from private collections. They were often beautifully crafted, date-stamped and cherished by their owners as art," Van Houtan said. "The point of our study is that they are also data."

Added McClenachan: "This research demonstrates the tremendous wealth of useful information that is often hidden away in people's attics."

The trio published their findings Aug. 1 as a peer-reviewed letter in the journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment.
