Captain Jerry Tilley’s recently published book, Ice & Fire is an adventurous, first-hand account of life in the Alaskan fishing industry during these early decades. It is not usual for Keyport to share book recommendations, but as a great friend and early business partner of ours, Jerry’s stories dovetail with our own history of crabbing in the Artic seas. And what a history it is! Jerry’s stories range from riding out a devastating tsunami, to dangerous rescue missions to feats of innovation that revolutionized the industry.
