The Cod Hunters

Regular price £15.00

The incredible story of the Shetlanders who fished for cod around Faroe, Rockall, Iceland and Greenland. Much more than the history of boats and fish, or Shetland and Shetlanders, this is a story of ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

The geographical scope is extensive; from the remote fjords of western Greenland to the elegant dining tables of nineteenth century London, from the fishing banks off Faroe to the the best restaurants in the Basque country, and from the taverns of Torshavn to the prison cells of Lerwick.

Author John Goodlad was the voice of the Shetland fishing industry as CEO of the Shetland Fishermen's Association, a former fish farmer, and currently an adviser to a number of national and international fisheries organisations.

Also available in hardback.
