9781926881461: People of the Sea

From bestselling author Clarence Vautier comes more stories of unsung heroes: the fishermen who made a living off the sea in Atlantic Canada. These stories are the biographies, family histories, and photograph collections of twenty-two highliners. During the twentieth century, these were the elite fishermen who consistently sailed home with the largest catches taken from the waters off Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick. Of course, with success often comes a price, and many of these brave fishermen lost their lives while engaged in what is still the most dangerous industry in the world. This book is a tribute to the men, women, and families who lived and died for the cold Atlantic waters.

About the Author:

Clarence Vautier, Jr. was born in 1972 in La Poile, Newfoundland and Labrador. He moved away to attend high school, and after high school he fished with his father Clarence, Sr. and his brother Raymond for a short time. Upon completion of school at the Nautical Institute of Nova Scotia in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, Clarence Vautier obtained employment with Biorex Atlantic Inc., where he took many voyages on many fishing vessels on the east coast of Canada.

In 1994 he enrolled at the Institute of Fisheries and Marine Technology at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, where he studied navigation. He later went to work as a deck officer on the Great Lakes, first for P & H Shipping, then for Algoma Central Marine, where he remains today.

Clarence Vautier currently resides in St. John's with his wife, Marina, and his son, Brandon Daniel.
