Hooked: The Story of the New Zealand Fishing Industry
By David Johnson
Completed by Jenny Haworth.

Hooked: The Story of the New Zealand Fishing Industry is the culmination of a lifetime's research into the industry - its pioneers, its personalities and its enormous value to this country.

From the oyster cutters of the 1800s and mullet canneries of the early twentieth century, to the declaration of a 200-mile zone in 1978 and the quota management system, David Johnson provides a vivid record of the people, the companies and the government administration of commercial fishing. More than this, he also covers aquaculture and marine farming, Maori traditional fishing and Treaty of Waitangi fishing rights, and the development of modern value-added processing that has now seen the industry earn almost $2 billion a year in exports.

This comprehensive book is based on extensive research, including interviews with over 150 people and studies of company archives, newspaper records and government reports. It is profusely illustrated with more than 250 photographs, many of which are previously unpublished.
