We talked about trade tariffs, the pandemic, a changing environment and how these, and many other factors are changing the food systems we have known.

Captain Dan & John gave us insight to the life of a lobster fishermen out on the ocean waves. How they got into commercial fishing, how they lay the traps, what it’s like hauling a 65lb lobster pot up from the briny. It was an enlightening conversation. The life of a fisherman is not for the feint of heart.
