Read full description of the books:



This is an insightful and well-researched book about the lives and struggles of commercial fisherman who live and work on the south fork of Long Island. In it the author chronicles the hardships these men face trying to make a living amidst increased government regulation and restriction. Clearly this remains a controversial issue and the author is fair in presenting differing points of view. The question remains whether such regulations are necessary (for example the legal length of sea bass) and should there be different regulations for the "sport" fisherman as opposed to the "commercial" fisherman. The title comes from a quote "its not the fish you are buying, its men's lives". Recommended for those who love the sea or just love to fish.
