The author focuses on the history of the fishing industry in the Isle of Man based on the book "Manx Sea Fishing 1600-1990s." He relates how drift-net fishing became an island-wide industry for the Manx people in the 17th century due to their reliance on herring as a staple fare, thus every farmer was required to supply eight fathoms of nets for every quarter of his land. By the 19th and 20th centuries, the Manx fisheries were exporting salted and smoked herring to the rest of Europe.
