Hooked: The Story of the New Zealand Fishing Industry
This book is the culmination of a lifetime's research into the New Zealand fishing industry - its pioneers and personalities and its enormous value to this country. It tells the story of down-to-earth, practical people who have searched for better ways to rig their gear, hone their hunting skills, and devise clever ways of getting top-quality fish from sea to table.
It is also the story of people who work on factory decks of trawlers, those who analyse and regulate, and those who travel the world searching for markets, doing deals. This comprehensive book is profusely illustrated with photographs to give readers a sense of this complex industry.
Unfortunately David Johnson died shortly before he could finish this book. It has been completed by Christchurch writer Jenny Haworth.
