The author in this paper describes an overview of the development of fisheries in Kali on the island of Ugljan from the mid-20th century to the present-day. Historical review of the fisheries in the area of Zadar emphasizes the importance of fisheries for the village of Kali and his rapid economic development and major source of income for the local population. The ethnography of fishing in Kali is defined from the collected data, from use of fishing tools, traditional customs and beliefs to the way of life of the whole community dependent on fishermen and fisheries in general. Economic-anthropological approach defines the type of production and type of fishermen community. As the dominant means of economy which entered in all spheres of life of its local population, fishing has become a local identity of the entire community. The paper answers the question whether such a community can identify with fishing and how; and also how this research can help its subjects – fishermen.
