A lively insider's account of the sport-fishing industry's 1995 campaign to convince Louisiana's government to ban most nets used by commercial fishermen. Includes a first-ever tally of the resulting loss of wild-caught fish, in pounds, to seafood markets and restaurants; and the loss, in dollars, to the economy.

About the Author

Refreshingly independent, Robert Fritchey chronicles the nation’s widening yet underreported disputes over our valuable marine resources. A former commercial fisherman, his specialty is fishery allocation and its relation to our environment, economy, and food supply. In addition to his occupational experience, his Bachelor’s degree from Cornell and MS from the LSU Medical Center help the author translate the jargon of publicly employed experts into an easy read. His first book, the 1994 “Wetland Riders,” investigated the influence and tactics of the recreational fishing industry in the 1980s and early-1990s fish fights in Texas and Louisiana. His 2015 “Missing Redfish” is an up-to-date management history of that iconic species in the Gulf of Mexico. “Let the Good Times Roll” is his third book. Mr. Fritchey currently divides his time seasonally between South Louisiana and Pennsylvania.
