More Information
Written in honor of the men and women who built and operated BC's commercial fishing industry, this history shows just how much more than fish goes into each can of salmon, shrimp etc. Joe and Anne Forester have combined talents to recall the old days of Indian fishing and the earliest efforts of pioneer fishermen and canners. Interviews and numerous photographs capture the atmosphere aboard tiny boats lacking radar and radio, while the authors tellingly outline dangers at sea, not omitting to pass on the humor of many a fishy tale.

Commercial Fishing is a story of hard work and success. For all who work in the industry, it is a treasure to own and relive; it is a factual reference and fascinating tale about fishing boats, gear, fish, processing methods and the growth of a vital B.C. industry.
