Book - 2012
Rate this:
More than a history of the Vancouver fishing industry, Bluebacks and Silver Brights is a collection of great adventures set on the Pacific coast. With dozens of salty tales of hardworking and hard-living fisherman and fish industry workers, this is Norman Safarik's story of West Coast fishing from the Gulf of Georgia to Prince Rupert, with a detour to New York's old-time fish markets. With wisdom and insight, Safarik's story is also an ecological warning, recalling the lost bounty of Canada's natural resources of a century ago, and their possible extinction today at the hands of government mismanagement and overfishing.
