    Hello I have a major research paper for my final year in high school. It is about a career/ occupation that we have looked into. I chose the general field of commercial fishing. I was wondering if there are any people here that would be willing to participate in a survey? If you trap, trotline any fish, crab, crayfish, or even turtles and sell them as your general or side income. Thank you all for your time and thank you for any and all participation

    What is your opinion on the outlook of this job in the future?:

    Is there anything you would like to add?:

    Thank you again for your time and any participation.

    Griz or Littlegriz can help get you in touch with some. Don't know if the commericial fishermen will talk or not. It's a good honest profession. Check out this link.

    Actually we have a couple members that are commercial fishermen. I'll see if I can point one this way.
