The Ethos and Luck of Deep-Sea Fishermen

Joseba Zulaika (Author) 

Based on his experience as a "cookee" on a Spanish trawler fishing the Grand Banks, Zulaika focuses on the superordinate place that luck has in ordering the fishermen's conceptual thinking about their environment and the availability of fish.
