Still Fishing magazine spreadRICHARD & ARNOLD is one of the oldest remaining Eastern-rig draggers still fishing—and one of the last still in existence outside a museum. She’s also one of the last of the family-owned-and-operated fishing boats that once dominated the New England fisheries during much of the 20th century. In the January/February issue, we tell this boat’s story—and tell of the economic and ecological challenges of the New England fisheries.
