Media reviews
Based largely on interviews with those involved, directly or indirectly, in New England groundfishing, this book examines the impacts of the 1996 Sustainable Fisheries Act from the perspective of small communities. Through narrative, the author gives voice to people closely involved with the problems of exploited fisheries in a book for a wide audience. - Fisheries; "An in-depth view of the processing and distribution centers, as well as the seafood restaurants that purchase the product of the fishermen's labor. Fishermen, scientists, and environmentalists will appreciate the model for a sustainable future advocated by the author." - Northeastern Naturalist; "Exhaustively reported and powerfully written." - National Fisherman; "This book paints a good picture of the politics of the fishing industry. The story is shocking and sad... A must-read for all New Englanders who want to preserve our unique communities and way of life. It is a fisherman's story of struggle and hopefully survival." - The Fisherman's Call"
