In California, a lot of people whose jobs have been deemed essential during the shelter-in-place work in food, including commercial fishers. The industry is tough even in the best of times. Now, restaurant closures and social distancing have made fishing for a living more complex — and child care plays a role too. In this installment of The Essentials, we meet a commercial fisher and father.

Jun 4, 2014

On the June 8, 2014 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Mike Hudson, veteran commercial fisher.  Can you actually make a living sustainably harvesting local salmon? How hard is it? Is it as freezing a venture as it sounds?  Any tricks of the trade? Any ways to be kinder to the fish? Any fish stories?

Plus, in the second half of the show, call in with your career conundrums. I try to help with a Three-Minute Workover.
