In his book Harvesting The Bay - Fathers, Sons and the Last of the Wild Shellfisherman Ray Huling creates a vivid and moving representation of the lives of the men and women of Rhode Island who work within the historic Narragansett Shellfishing industry. Huling, whose family have been shellfishermen in this area for generations, describes this hard working community with a passion only possible of someone whose entire life has been shaped by the industry. Dad hung a picture on the parlor wall, and everyone mistook it for a photograph of a planet. What's that, Neptune?" asked a good friend. This pleased me because of Neptune's association with the sea. What people mistook for a planet was actually my father's eye. During surgery to repair his detached and torn retinas, his surgeons photographed his eyes from within their sockets. This operation ended his career as a full-time fisherman.

I brought this book for my husband William because it was recommended to him by a friend. Both my husband and his friend are professional quahoggers in Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island. So
you can imagine how close he was to this story. The ending of the book was very tragic as everyone knew this man including myself. The book was well written and I was hoping there might be
another book.

When I started this book I knew next to nothing about quahogs, quahogging or even New England shellfisherman in general. But Harvesting the Bay not only broke down the details in such a way that I could easily understand, but did an excellent job of raising important questions about what it means to make our system of food production sustainable. The book is so much more than that though -- I really enjoyed both the memoir aspects and the brief glimpses into the relationship Native Americans had with the quahogs. Highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in learning about an industry which has existed sustainably for over 150 years.

A great read. Tells it like it is. I lived it only in a different state. Pretty accurate if you want to know about the day and life of an inshore shellfisherman.

A great informative book.

As a former shell fisherman I thought it would be a very exciting book to read. I did learn many interesting facts. The book did spend a lot of details regarding the writer's family that were just not interesting to me.

"Harvesting the Bay" is both a fun read and a deeply wise book. I think the most important decision Mr. Huling made was not to romanticize the shellfishermen or their community, a decision he talks about explicitly. There are dozens of "colorful characters" in the book, and a book playing up the quirks and virtues of "the last members of a dying breed" would have been easier to write and fun to read.

Instead, he looks at the shellfishing community, his own family included, in a way that respects their humanity and portrays them in full, not just "warts and all," but in all their complexity and contradictions.

He also refutes the claim that they should be seen as "the last of a dying breed." As sustainable producers of food, they are in fact survivors of a breed that we're going to need a lot more of in the future. After all, our current unusustainable food production cannot (by definition) be sustained.

The effect of reading the book is sort of like getting 10 or 15 years worth of fascinating conversations with a brilliant friend. Each chapter has a general theme, and each approaches the subject from a different angle. But the chapters aren't structured like schoolhouse essays - they're complex mixtures of fact, argumentation, self-reflection, and anecdote. I certainly had a lot of "wow, I never knew that!" and "wow, I never thought of it that way!" moments, and I imagine almost any reader will.

I lived in Rhode Island off and on for 20 years and had absolutely no exposure to the world of quahogging - other than developing a great love of "stuffies." Rhode Island is that kind of place - yes, it's really small, but it's a world of many subcultures. One of the most amazing things to me, knowing the state and its corruption pretty well, is that they managed to set up shellfishing as a sustainable industry with dredging outlawed. As he tells the tale, it took a combination of historical accident, wisdom, and self-interested activism.

Mr Huling finds this rather amazing too and would like to see Rhode Island treasure the culture and the industry which it almost inadvertently nurtured. I share his hope.

This book is really three books in one.... (1) it is a deep dive into the Rhode Island shellfishing industry - a comprehensive view into its resource management practices and the culture that supports such practices; (2) it is an introspective investigation of the author's own family that has 'survived' modern suburban America by digging clams out of the dirt; (3) it is a thoughtful essay on the complexities of sustainability - economics, ecosystems, labor, consumption, conservation, generational responsibility, and public health.

Given this wide scope, the book might have been overwhelming. But, on the contrary, I found it very readable. The author did a good job balancing opinion, investigation, storytelling, and human interest. He moves around quite a bit and keeps the reader's attention.

For me, the stories about the fishermen and the author's family were the most engaging, but I tend to read more fiction than non-fiction. The first and last couple of chapters really pulled it together. The personal story (which has an underlying note of despair) nicely bookends the headier investigative reporting.

All in all - highly recommended for anyone who enjoys narrative non-fiction/ literary journalism.
