Evidence for fishing and shellfish gathering is abundant in the prehistoric Aegean settlements. They vary across regions and periods, indicating that the communities were engaged in marine resources and seafaring in different forms and scales over the ages. We will attempt to reconstruct the social network related with prehistoric fishing and shellfish gathering activities in the Aegean Region based on the available archaeological, zoo-archeological, historical and ethnographic records. We believe that the importance of fishing, which was an integral part of daily life in prehistoric Aegean communities including different age, gender and status groups, goes far beyond simply being a food source. The value of fishing lies in its ability to accommodate the small movements of social life, which have been obscured by great movements of the history. These small movements are often cyclical, which built the foundation of social life in the Mediterranean and maintained their visibility within long-term processes.
