Barr'd Islands - Fishing

 

 

Despite the decline in fishing practices, Barr'd Islands residents continue to carry local knowledge about the fishery. Bill Godwin, a Barr'd Islands fisherman, explains how to indentify a "choice fish." Doug Primmer also provides information about the fishery-- here he talks about his fishing stage and processing equipment, including the splitting table, puncheon tub and pounds.
