Concept development

- Initially, there was a lot of questions as to whether the fishermen would allow themselves to be tracked. That they wished to keep fishing grounds secret. Quite frankly, there are typically twenty-five men who work each one of these boats, and they often change boats. So if a fishing spot is 'secret' it doesn't stay that way for long.

Meeting with a number of the boat owners and captains, I learned they were happy to have people come along with them. After several 14 hour days at sea, fishing and talking, you soon gain an understanding of their perspective.

note: it is extremely important that you observe sea custom; e.g. does not matter who you are, you ask permission to come onboard.
