Kiyo and Tomi Marsh conceived this book of delicious seafood recipes and salty fishing stories while rolling around the stormy Bering Sea on Tomi's 78-foot fishing boat, the "Savage. "What began as a joke about "cooking in the ditch" (the trough of the wave) morphed into "The Fishes & Dishes Cookbook."

Inside, you'll peek into the remarkable lives of the women who work in America's deadliest industry. They share stories of running their own boats crab fishing on the Bering Sea, long-lining for halibut and black cod, and tendering salmon in Southeast Alaska.

Besides the 80 surprisingly simple yet mouth-watering seafood recipes - your taste buds will never be the same - this fascinating book also offers tips for cleaning, preserving, and preparing fish; hints for pairing win e with seafood; a glossary of commercial fishing terms; an explanation of fishing methods; on-board fashion tips; and information about sustainability.
