Book Description
The fishing industry kills more people than any other job in the world. On average, Atlantic Canada loses one fisherman every month.

From the pages of the Navigator magazine comes a collection of more than twenty sea stories from Jim Wellman’s widely acclaimed series, Final Voyages. This volume marks his fourth venture onto the cold Atlantic waters, to stand alongside captain and crew and tell the stories of these unsung heroes: small-boat fishermen. In this book we learn the dangers of the sea that these mariners from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador must face every day . . . in the deadliest profession known to man.

About the Author:
Jim Wellman grew up in Port Anson, a small fishing and logging community on Newfoundland’s northeast coast. The son of a schooner captain, Jim never strayed far from his marine roots despite choosing a career in journalism. For fifteen years, Jim was host of the popular radio program the "Fisheries Broadcast" on CBC Radio in Newfoundland. After taking an early retirement from the radio business in 1997, Jim turned off the microphone and picked up a pen. He has written four books with marine connections. Jim has been contracted by several agencies and corporations such as Marine Atlantic, the Canadian Sealers Association, and Heritage Canada to draw from his marine knowledge, particularly in the fishing industry. In November 2002 Jim became managing editor of The Navigator, Atlantic Canada’s premier fisheries and marine magazine. He holds that same position today.
