Abstract

Historical landings from the Venice (Italy) fish market for the period 1905-1927 (with some temporal gaps) were retrieved and transformed into workable spreadsheets from statistical bulletins published by the Municipality of Venice, the "Società regionale veneta per la pesca e l'acquicultura" (Veneto regional society for fisheries and aquaculture) and by the historical scientific journal called "Neptunia".
At that time, Venice fish market was one of the most important in the area together with Rijeka (currently Croatia) and Trieste (currently Italy). Almost all fish caught in the Northern Adriatic Sea at time was sold to these fish markets. Landings are reported by their origin, i.e. capture-based aquaculture in the lagoon of Venice, capture freshwater-fishery (local rivers and lakes), Venice lagoon capture fishery and Northern Adriatic sea capture fishery. Species were reported with their scientific and vernacular names that were updated according to the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS). Overall, information on 130 marketed categories is reported (1,192 records). However, the taxonomic resolution of landings changed over time, from a minimum number of 26 (1910) to a maximum of 108 categories (1919-1924). Marketed categories may include one or more species. Multispecies categories usually group taxonomically similar species, i.e. species of the same genus or family.
