Eyes on the Sea

A look into the Fisheries Observer Profession through Stories and Creative Works

Edited by Keith Davis, Anik Clemens and Glenn Quelch

There is a universal thread that runs through the observer community and it is expressed in this book by dozens of observers worldwide. Captive on the High Seas, The Goddamn Weather!, An Almost Disaster, Roach Dialogues, The Aleutian Star, Black Seeps In, Off the Hook: Helping Save the Turtles I Grew Up With. These are some of the creative short stories and poems inspired by their life at sea as fisheries observers. It is a wonderful and entertaining compilation of short stories that was many years in the making and a labor of love. Copies are available here.


Our goal is to provide a comprehensive source of information for observers, and the public, on issues related to fishery observer programs.
