Book Description
The fishermen who ply their trade on the Atlantic Ocean can tell thousands of tales of daring rescue and tragic loss of life. In The Trawlermen, Clarence Vautier explores the lives of some of Atlantic Canada’s best-known sea captains. He traces the history of these men and their stalwart vessels while highlighting their more heroic—and dangerous—exploits on the high seas.

About the Author
Clarence Vautier Jr. was born in 1972 in La Poile, Newfoundland. He moved away to attend high school, and after high school he fished with his father, Clarence Sr., and his brother Raymond for a short time. Upon completion of school at the Nautical Institute of Nova Scotia in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, Clarence obtained employment with Biorex Atlantic Inc., and he took many voyages on fishing vessels on the east coast of Canada. He later went to work as a deck officer on the Great Lakes, first for P & H Shipping, then for Algoma Central Marine, where he remains today. Clarence Vautier currently resides in St. John’s with his wife, Marina, and their son, Brandon Daniel.
