How a Ship Full of Fish Helped Recreate an Ancient Fish Sauce (Smithsonian)

Melanie Wong | Mar 7, 2012 10:10 AM

"The ship was full of fish—maybe even live ones. Italian researchers found that the vessel contained what amounts to a giant fish tank—a hydraulic system capable of transporting 440 pounds of live parrotfish (Scarus ssp.) from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. The wreck also contains 600 amphorae, some with well-preserved fish sauce inside."
