Dating and fish in the sea

Lake Copais itself was famous in all Greece for its eels, celebrated by the hero of The Acharnians.

Stockfish, cod that was split down the middle, fixed to a pole and dried, was very common, though preparation could be time-consuming, and meant beating the dried fish with a mallet before soaking it in water.

Some seafood is feed to aquarium fish, or used to feed domestic pets, such as cats, and a small proportion is used in medicine, or is used industrially for non-food purposes (leather).

discarded fish bones and cave paintings show that sea foods were important for survival and consumed in significant quantities.

The consumption of fish varied in accordance with the wealth and location of the household.
