Themes

We’ve woven individual stories into a number of themes, so you can hear multiple voices in conversation with each other.

Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, grandparents and grandkids…The Next Generation is all about how families pass down work and knowledge from one generation to the next, and how kids grow up in families in the industry.

Sticking Together includes stories from fisherman’s wives about how they have worked to keep their families and communities together – whether by cooking family dinners, or by going to march in support of the fishing industry.

It’s not always easy working in a Family Business.  Multiple generations of shoreside family business members share their feelings of pride and responsibility of carrying on a legacy.

Everyone in a fishing family participates in keeping things running, whether Dad (or Mom!) is home or out to sea.  The stories in Keeping Home are about the home itself: the things in it that families make or collect to make it meaningful.
