SOFA History Initiative

We put a microphone in front of SOFA fishermen and let them talk. We can't guarantee that the size of the fish hasn't gotten bigger, but they had some great stories to share.



Through the support of the SOFA Humanities Council and the Island Institute, SOFA was able to collect hours of oral histories from fishermen throughout SOFA. We took some stories and snippets from those interviews and turn them into short YouTube videos for your enjoyment. Take a little time to listen to the amazing experiences and perspectives that SOFA's Fishermen share from their lives out on the water.
