The back page tells you more about this book:
I have known Don and Jean for many years since their days on “Zora Anne” and was delighted that he decided to write about some of their exploits in the fishing industry, particularly as I had worked on Trawlers. His writing demonstrates his humour as he relates with great recall, the challenges, the bureaucracy, and the characters encountered.
Allan J Berling
“I’d been buying Don and Jean’s delicious fish for a while, when one day he told me the most extraordinary tale; he’d been trying for years to convince the Fremantle fishing fleet they were literally throwing valuable mullet roe away as fish bait. At last one skipper agreed to put some aside, and when Don and Jean transformed that cheap bait fish into a delicacy which had Sydney’s top chefs lining up for more, ‘suddenly the light went on.’ It was that quiet determination, plus dedication to quality and authenticity, that shines through in Don’s book, along with him being a great judge of character and having a fisherman’s ability to tell it like it was. It was one of The Herald’s most popular stories, and for months after, I was getting calls from people trying to get some of his exotic fish eggs; I’m sure the readers will find this autobiographic work similarly engaging.”
