Participation rates in Australia’s commercial fishing industry have declined at an alarming rate. Rather than lament what has been lost, Dave Dawson has gathered stories to celebrate what was. A few select real life characters have shared their exciting tales of life at sea, in fair and foul weather, through the boom times and busts. Each of these fishermen demonstrate strength, resolve, determination and endurance required for success in a very tough, yet rewarding world. Join Dave for a taste of the way that the world was, and perhaps should still be, when men were men, unrestricted by a bloated, overbearing environmental and bureaucratic monster. Come, step aboard and sail away with us for a unique view of this wonderful ocean of proud individuals – the salt of the sea.
