3 APOSTLE, Richard BARRETT, Gene Emptying Their Nets : Small Capital and Rural industrialization in the NovaScotia Fishing Industry
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1992, ISBN:0802068316 
APOSTLE, Richard and Gene BARRETT. Emptying Their Nets : Small Capital and Rural industrialization in the Nova Scotia Fishing Industry. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1992). Pp (8),[ix]xvii,(5),[3]-396. Tables. Maps.8vo, card covers. Also with contributions by Pauline Barber, Kevin J. Barr ett, Anthony Davis, Marie Giasson, Leonard Kasdan, Leigh Mazany and Lawrence Willett. "The day of the independent fisher is done, according to conventional wisdom. There is a widespread conviction today that the survival of small capital in the fishing industry is anachronistic or, at best, exceptjonal, and therefore relatively unimportant in the grander scheme of things. Richard Apostle and Gene Barrett take a different view. They argue that thedifferentiated structure of the industry, while rooted in a number of reso urce-centred conditions, stems from a range of socioeconomic factors which the fishery shares with other industrial sectors. It is the overall constellation of events and forces that continually regenerates a. structural basis for small capital and frustrates the centralization ana concentration of capital. They suggest mat a variety of types ot small capital must bc distinguished, each with particular internal structures - for example, relationsto the harvesting sector, large-scale capital, and the market. While the c oastal zone fishery is vital to the small capital processing sector, family-based organization, intermediate technology, surplus labour, and communitystructures are central to this structure as well. They argue as well that a populist ideology rooted in individualism and free enterprise emanates from this structure and represents its major weak point in terms of concertedaction during times of crisis. The culmination of a six-year research proj ect, this work incorporates primary research data collected through surveysof plant managers, fishers, plant workers and brokers, four community stud ies, and financial analysis of fish plant operations. It identifies variousstrands and patterns that make up the fabric of rural community, revealing the complex interconnections among household, class, gender, and community and the structuring of economy and society.." (Abstract). Contents : 1. A theoretical overview (by Richard Apostle and Gene Barrett). 2. Mercantile and industrial development to 1945 (by Gene Barrett). 3. Post-war development (by Gene Barrett). 4. Small, competitive, and large : fish plants in the 1980s (by Richard Apostle, Gene Barrett, Anthony Davis, and Leonard Kasdan). 5.
