Wilkens, Barbara (2005) Fishing in the Arabian sea : a short note on the prehistoric sites RH6 and Ra's al-Jinz 1 in Oman. Paléorient, Vol. 31 (1), p. 126-130. ISSN 0153-9345. Article.
The study of the faunal remains from the sites ofRH6 and RHJ1 in Oman shows the importance of fishing in the economy of this region. The site ofRH6 in the 6th millennium BP is particularly rich in remains. The species derive from different marine environments and they suggest the existence of different fishing techniques. The second and later site has fewer species but this may result from the poor state of preservation, and therefore the smaller number of identified remains. Fishing practice was probably connected to climatic factors, and it seems to have been more intense at the beginning of the good season, namely the months with greater rainfall and lower temperature. =
