Prices are set according to day's supply in all traps. As in almost all cases traps share equally in a day's run. Fishermen get little either way, they either sell little fish for a comparatively decent price or much fish for little. Provincetown, Massachusetts

In the cabin of the Beatrice S., a beam-trawler which was one of a considerable fleet that fished out of Provincetown as late as '37. Today there is a mere handful of these boats left. Their practice is at sea, wherever the water is shallow enough to allow the nets to drag until a catch is made, sometimes several days. This cabin is the living, dining, bedroom and kitchen.
