SH222 .O7 O761 1990

Commercial fishing takes place out of sight and largely out of mind. It's a business plied by risk takers who gamble with their livelihoods, and even their lives, as they work to provide high quality foods for our markets. Chinook and coho salmon, Dungeness crab, albacore tuna, Pacific halibut, pink shrimp, black cod, and a variety of rockfish and flatfish - these are the seafoods harvested by Oregon's commercial fishermen. This video takes the viewer to sea for a first hand look at a fascinating industry, and a unique breed of individuals for whom it represents.
