The herring has done much to shape both human taste and history. Men cooperated and came into conflict over its shoals, setting out on boats to catch them and straying to bring full nets to shore. Women gutted and salted the catch during the annual harvest and knitted the garments fishermen wore to protect them from the ocean's chill

Perilous Catch: The History of Commercial Fishing. This is the story of Britain's commercial fishermen, who have sailed out into the ravages of the surrounding seas to bring back the fish to feed their country for centuries.

Perilous Catch: The History of Commercial Fishing. Theirs is one of history's most dangerous jobs, and whole communities have been affected by disasters from which a number of the town's men may not have returned: in 1872 some 129 fishermen were lost in one night alone. Loss of life in the industry was caused by a number of factors: extreme weather conditions, lack of emergency support, and, perhaps most crucially, most couldn't swim.

However, in this book we are only concerned with what could be termed ‘commercial fishing’ although this, too . The plaque at Portskerra in memory of the fishermen from the local community who drowned within sight of their homes while fishing. And of course it never ends.

However, in this book we are only concerned with what could be termed ‘commercial fishing’ although this, too, is misleading. Is subsistence fishing commercial fishing? Not really, I would argue, although subsistence fishing is very much at the heart of this book. Angling is not included as that is regarded purely as a sport, although some will argue that they are anglers only to gain food. However, in this book we will refrain from the mention of any angling, even if there are those that will complain.

For over two millennia, herring has been commercially caught, and its importance to the coastal peoples of Britain cannot be measured. At one point tens of thousands were involved in the catching, processing, and sale of herring. They followed the shoals around the coast from Stornoway to Penzance and many towns on Britain’s East Coast grew rich on the backs of the "silver darlings." This book looks at the effects of the herring on the people who caught them, their unique ways of life, the superstitions of the fisherfolk, their boats, and the communities who lived for the silver darlings.
