The FISH Maritime Craft Types Thesaurus from the Forum on Information Standards in Heritage includes terms for craft types which survive as wrecks for Historic England’s maritime record and can be used to describe types of ship.
Historic England, as part of the Forum on Information Standards in Heritage (FISH), takes a leading role in setting standards for recording the built and buried heritage. Historic England and FISH are continually developing new thesauri to provide structure and guidelines for the standardisation of terms to be used when creating new records of the past.
