Fisheries From 1973 to 2023: How We Got Here
The author founded "Commercial Fisheries News" in 1973. Here she reflects on the changes that have occurred in the Maine fishing industry in the past 50 years -- from increased reliance on technology over direct observation and memory for navigation, to the materials used in boat building. She also discusses changes in federal and state laws, and how lobster fishers now operate within a complex system of regulation. Includes a sidebar that gives a history of the newspaper.
