In this engaging memoir of a career at sea, Captain George Moskovita offers a unique perspective on the commercial fishing industry in the Pacific.

In this account of a seafaring life, Captain George Moskovita offers a highly personal and humorous look at the career of a commercial fisherman. George Moskovita was sixteen when he went to sea. Fishing would take him crabbing off Alaska, seining for sardines off California, tuna off Mexico, and soupfin sharks off Oregon. He came to Astoria in 1939, where he was a pioneer of the Oregon ocean perch fishery. Moskovita’s memoir provides a unique glimpse of Pacific maritime life in the 20th century, small-town coastal life after World War II, and the early days of fishery development in the Pacific Northwest.

George Moskovita was born in Bellingham, Washington in 1913, the son of immigrant parents from Yugoslavia. George started fishing for salmon at the age of sixteen, and never looked back.
