Dr. Holm suggested that human tended to depend on the ocean, but at the same time, human appeared to know little about the ocean. He showed a list of methodologies for the study of maritime history, including estimating the general amount of fish, analysis of shell mound and fish bones, utilization of logbook, etc. Dr. Holm took Norfish as an example to demonstrate seven cases about the exploration of marine environmental history, using the methodology of combination by quantitative method and qualitative method. He stressed that it is a general trend to conduct interdisciplinary cooperation about the research of marine environmental history in the future.
