Josh has captained the F/V Full Scale for the past six summers in Bristol Bay, Alaska. He is fortunate to be able to spend two months every summer working alongside three of the most dedicated and hardworking people he has ever encountered.
My name is Marc Barreda and I am one of the sensitive, strong backs and weak minds that Josh has wrangled into this game called fishing.
Most of the year I reside in Amsterdam spinning the myriad of plates it takes to call myself an artist; blowing glass, teaching, building exhibitions for other artists and making time to develop own works. And then for two miraculous and challenging months out of the year I get to leave most of that behind and disappear into the tundra beaches of Bristol Bay. Together, the four of us, crew and captain navigate rocky waters, competitive boats and the challenges of keeping an old perseverant boat pushing through long days in order to bring the highest quality salmon to you.
I'm proud to be part of one of the most intensively managed fisheries in the world that can consistently provide 51% of the world's wild salmon harvest every year. I'm proud to be a member of the fine crew of the Full Scale. And I'm proud to bring you a product that I can call the best!
