David B. Thomson
Our Fishing Heritage
Copyright: David B Thomson, 2010


The following are selected chapters from a new book by a former Lossie fisherman. They recount the town’s fishing heritage from the 19th century and detail its fleet’s rise to prosperity and its subsequent demise under the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy. The chapters go on to describe similar fisheries and fishery cultures in other parts of the world.
