New Zealand fish species poster, 1977

The New Zealand Fishing Industry Board (predecessor to the New Zealand Seafood Industry Council) produced commercial fish species posters to educate New Zealanders about the types of fish available for consumption in New Zealand. Posters like this are still a common sight on the walls of takeaway shops.
