The most read entry on the blog is Bob’s account of flying over the Soviet fishing fleet in 1966, watching them catch rockfish. There is very little documentation of this important period in Pacific fisheries history, but I’ve written several posts that deal with why the Soviet fleet was fishing off Oregon.  West Coast redfish stocks still have not recovered from the Soviet fishery of 50 years ago.
