In his number-one bestseller, The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger describes Linda Greenlaw as "one of the best sea captains, period, on the East Coast." Now Greenlaw tells her own riveting story of a thirty-day swordfishing voyage aboard one of the best-outfitted boats on the East Coast, complete with danger, humor, and characters so colorful they seem to have been ripped from the pages of Moby Dick. The excitement starts immediately, even before Greenlaw and her five-man crew leave the dock - and it doesn't stop until the last page. Under way, she must cope with nasty weather, equipment failure, and treachery aboard ship, not to mention the routinely backbreaking work of operating a fishing boat.Displaying a true fisherman's gift for storytelling and a true writer's flair for both drama and reflection, Greenlaw offers an exciting real-life adventure tale filled with the beauty and power of the sea.… (mere)

    Trawler: A Journey Through the North Atlantic af Redmond O'Hanlon (ten_floors_up)
    ten_floors_up: Suggested as a contrast, rather than as a companion piece. "Trawler" describes a commercial fishing voyage seen from a writer's perspective below deck. The trip in question takes place on the other side of the Atlantic, and describes quite different fishing methods and quarry.… (mere)

Very well written, descriptive account of the professionals who catch seafood for our tables. If you love to fish, you'll love this book. If not, you'll still find it a very interesting story of a typical month at sea. Sure am glad there's someone who wants to do this. ( )

I am sure this has a lower rating than it deserves as most want to read more about the Andrea Gail. The book did a great job of talking about life on a swordfishing boat on a great trip. I was hooked from the get go ... ( )

Really enjoyed reading this book! For anyone interested in what transpires aboard a fishing boat between Captain and crew, and the challenges, rewards and hardships of fishing offshore, this is sure to keep you engrossed and wanting more. Won't be able to think of Swordfish fishing without thinking of Linda Greenlaw. ( )

The Hungry Ocean by Linda Greenlaw
Have read other works by this author and have enjoyed them.
She, swordfish captain and the 5 man crew leave the dock heading to Grand Banks, Newfoundland area.
Love learning about the technical things and new things I've yet to know about: birds and why they are used.
Love how they get along with one another under all circumstances.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

A nice perspective on commercial fishing from a different voice. ( )
