Abstract or Summary
  • It has been recently reported that the major canned fish found in international trade –tuna- was first canned in 1903 in southern California. This US-centric view regrettably omits the important foreign trade of canned fish products borne as far back as the late 1820s in Europe, birth place of this long-lasting industry. On the basis of archives and time series on landings, foreign trade data and the number of canneries in France and Portugal, it seems interesting to develop an historical look at this important worldwide industry through various events having affected the level of trade (depletion of natural stocks, wars, colonies, international investment, industrial concentration, etc.). Sometimes, such historical events may be as important as the classical economic factors to explain the dynamics of foreign trade. Prior to many other manufactured goods, the fish canning industry has been hit by globalisation a long time ago. This historical approach provides an opportunity to discuss the present time and future of the European fish canning industry.
