Nets, Lines and Pots: A History of New Zealand Fishing Vessels Volume One

Author(s): Emmanuel Makarios


More than just the vessels, this book and the sequels tell with great pictures the stories of hardy individuals who, in the face of often adverse weather and economic conditions, have sought to earn a living from the sea. The author, exhibitions officer at the Wellington Maritime Museum from 1986 to 2000, set out to give these individuals their much deserved place in the nation's heritage. This first volume, among other episodes, recounts the early fishermen of Island Bay, blue cod and cray fishing in the Chatham Islands, fishing vessels at war, and the story of Ivan Tally, the founder of Tally's Fisheries. The text is complemented by over 100 photographs. 260 x 190 mm format.
