Actually there are plenty of examples that demonstrate this practice. In fact, they even go back to aboriginal people.

Clement Meighan showed in archaeological work done back in the 1950's that the "Gabrielino" people who inhabited Catalina did this. They would occupy an area and exploit the most desirable species (such as abalone) first, then switch to mussels and wavy top snails and finally feed on barnacles until the resources at that site could not sustain the population. Then they would move on to another site and repeat the process.
