Description
 

Fishing was the backbone of a number of the Bay's communities. "They were our heroes" said a local resident.

The pioneering fishermen in the 1860s were a tough breed. It was a time of sail. If the wind dropped, they rowed the 40 kilometre round trip to their fishing grounds. The industry flourished up to the 1980s. The book explores why the industry has declined so dramatically since those glory days.

The book also looks to the future and uncovers how the fishermen have dealt with enormous challenges.

Up to now, the story of the local fishing industry has largely been untold. The book seeks to capture the story before it is lost as old fishermen pass away.
