Endangered Species – Chronicles of a New England Fisherman & the Fishing Vessel Ellen Diane
Friday, March 15th, 2023 | 6pm – 7pm
Speaker: Captain David Goethel, Retired Commercial Fisherman
David is a small boat fisherman, an “endangered species”, who works tirelessly for himself and others like him to survive. Follow along on that journey, sea stories and autobiography mixed with twists and turns of science and management as David and his family work relentlessly to feed America sustainable seafood.
Fishing is not a job; it is a way of life. David is determined to maintain that life fighting through storm tossed adversity that nature lays out endlessly, and the new sinister efforts of a modern society who live on land and have no concept of how those at sea ensure their own survival as well as the fish on which they depend. Reading Endangered Species will take readers on a journey through time while demonstrating why some individuals will always be called to work the sea.
David will be reading an excerpt from the book then discussing a series of photos depicting his decades on the water, followed by a book signing.
