In addition to seafood recipes, this book included lots of information about the various types of shellfish and fin fish found mainly along the Atlantic coast. There were lots of interesting historical tidbits, such as the fact that lobsters were considered a poor man's food in the 1700s, fed to prisoners and servants and used to fertilize fields. There were also historical photos of boats used for fishing provided by Mystic Seaport, a wonderful maritime museum in southeastern Connecticut.
