Once again, Mick Blackistone proves that he understands the watermen and their unique relationship with the Bay and her fisheries. Dancing with the Tide tells it 'like it is', and it is through this approach that people will see how Bay watermen are impacted by circumstances involving politics, development, regulations, economics, and the environment.

-Larry Simns, President,
Maryland Watermen's Association

Mick Blackistone's passion for the Chesapeake Bay and for the people who depend on a healthy ecosystem is without question. In Dancing with the Tide, the author shows us why the innate cultural knowledge of the watermen must be integrated into our ongoing efforts to understand the Bay scientifically and to develop sound public policy to guide its restoration.

-Ann Pesiri Swanson,
Executive Director,
Chesapeake Bay Commission
