Book Description

More than a history of the Vancouver fishing industry, this collection of adventures set on the Pacific Ocean also serves as a compelling memoir. With dozens of salty tales of hardworking and hard-living fishermen and fish-industry workers, this is the story of West Coast fishing from the Strait of Georgia, down to Steinbeck’s Cannery Row, and even a look into New York’s old-time, mob-controlled fish markets. With wisdom and insight, the tales also serve as an ecological warning, recalling the lost bounty of Canada’s natural resources of a century ago and their possible extinction today at the hands of government mismanagement and overfishing.
