This historically significant group of silver gelatin photographs by Dean Kotula offers an exciting and rare glimpse of foreign factory ships fishing in U.S. waters. After 1975, every foreign vessel fishing in U.S. waters had to have an American on board during fishing operations to document catches and collect biological data. From 1985 to 1990 Kotula worked aboard these factory ships as an observer, taking full advantage of this extraordinary experience by putting his camera to use.
