A study on the culture of lobster fishing. Very entertaining.

This book gives a real insiders look at lobster fishing... everything from the hurdle of becoming an accepted member of a "Harbor Gang" to a scientific and economic look at voluntary and mandatory regulations, size limits, etc If you've ever spent any time on the Maine coast and watched the lobster fisherman or bought lobster from a dockside co-op you'll enjoy learning more about the "rest of the story".
An easy & quick read but very interesting.
