I’ve been a Commercial Fisherman for the past 15 years. I’m currently living in Juneau, Alaska and starting my next big adventure as a Dad. When I’m not fishing, I’m at home with the family in Juneau. Commercial fishing is a way of life and I can’t think of a better way to make a buck.
The format is simple here. I usually comment about the article, add a photo, and post some content from the article. Everything is intended as fair use. I’m simply bringing news articles together from around the web about commercial fishing and adding a bit of commentary.
Wow, when I originally wrote that, I had no idea what kind of fishing future was ahead of me. Now, it’s more clear to me that this mission is about the changes we have seen over the years. The world as we know it is slowing changing around us. For the past 7 years, I have personally encountered the changing sea and tides of our modern fisheries. After 20 years of being a slave to the sea, I realize that I could I have been part of the problem the entire time. Most of our fisheries on the west coast are in decline. The markets have failed to compete in a modern landscape and consumers have no real idea about seafood. Its hard to realize that 20 years of effort has been wasted and exploited by weak backed, fat bellied morons. This is not the industry for the educated. Oh yeah, nevermind that. Just focus on the pretty pictures and “cool” fishing vids. The industry is fine. Nothing to see here…
