Commercial Fishing Quote

I love this quote from the article “Nor’easter Research Profile: Surviving the Changes—Families Respond to Fisheries Management,” by Helen Mederer (Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, University of Rhode Island):

“It has been well established in numerous social science studies that fishing is more than a job; it is an identity and a lifestyle as well. It is this identity and lifestyle that fishermen value above all.”
