Welcome!

Bristol Bay July 2000

Welcome to The Westcoast Fisherman page. On this page we aim to celebrate the independent fisherman from the Bering to the Baja. The people who spend days, months and years at sea can offer important perspectives on fisheries management. It will be you, the fisherman, who can best document the exciting history of the fisheries of the Pacific Coast. We invite you to apply for a free subscription and we look forward to your participation on these pages.  Any suggestions for improvement will be most welcome.

    Mario Tara of Tara Boatworks was my maternal grandfather. I remember climbing around in his boathouse on the dike at Port Guichon just past the Westham Island bridge back in the early 60’s. I have afew of his old handmade wooden planes. Have always admired how his boats have lasted so long and how they were built with so little technology. Great site
