Henry Koerner: Fish Is a Fighting Food 1943.  Koerner's poster highlights the importance of the fishing industry in the food supply chain during the war. A barrel overflowing with the catch of the day is shown landing on a trawler's deck. Eating fish was considered a hardship in the meat and potatoes world of the 40s. Meat could be shipped overseas for the troops and their dependents but fish was too delicate and perishable for shipment overseas. 28x20, near mint, conservation backed.
