Tides of Change: the Story of the New Zealand Federation of Commercial Fishermen, 1958-2008

Author(s): Jenny Haworth

NZ - History

Tides Of Change tells the story of the independent fishermen who sailed small vessles to harvest the New Zealand seas. Their small craft limited most of them to the inshore fisheries, to catching snapper, gurnard, cod, rock lobster, hapuka, tarakihi and many other popular species. This book is a tribute to those men who gave devoted service to their industry for so long. It is also a tribute to all fishermen who have battled the elements at sea and the changing tides of policy on shore and managed to keep fishing.
