When fishing families confront economic, personal, and social stresses, it can be a scary and painful time for all family members. In American culture, asking for help isn’t easy. Most fishing families are hardworking, independent, and proud. These qualities can be useful, but they can also make it more difficult for a person to ask for help. It’s easy to forget but important to remember that seeking help when you need it is a strength, not a weakness.
