Abstract

A review of the archaeological evidence underlying a model by Walters of late Holocene Aboriginal marine fishery intensification in southeast Queensland is undertaken. The results of a regional review of the available fish bone neither support an argument for a general pattern of increase in fish discard at coastal sites nor the claim for an exponential increase through time in the number of sites exhibiting fish remains. Major taphonomic issues and research biases are considered to have played a role in structuring the archaeological database of the region.
