Editor’s Note: The Maine Monitor is partnering with Peter Neill of the World Ocean Observatory to bring you this hour-long interview podcast.
Conversations from the Pointed Firs is a monthly, interview-style podcast during which Peter talks with authors and artists who live in Maine, work in Maine, or otherwise derive their creativity from the essence of Maine.
The guests for this episode are Glen Libby and Antonia “Toni” Small, authors of the book “Caught: Time, Place, Fish” which contains portraits and essays on fisheries and fishers, an essential aspect of the spirit of Maine.
Libby is a working fisherman, proprietor of Port Clyde Fresh Catch, and an advocate for fishing policy in Maine. Small is a photographer, educator and ocean advocate.
Together they co-authored the book, which is an account of the beauty, fragility and profound change that characterizes fishing, fishing families, and the communities who depend on them. Through portraits and essays, “Caught” chronicles the individual and community efforts to transform a way of life for all who depend on the ocean’s bounty.
