Overview

As a member of a multi-generational trap fishing family, Corey Forrest carried her children in Baby Bjorns and backpacks as she sorted fish, tied knots and pulled lines. She raised her kids amidst a proud heritage that’s now the last of its kind in Rhode Island. For four generations, Forrest’s family has skillfully maintained their traditional, hand-hauling trap fishing methods with a deep reverence for the natural world. Using decades-old equipment and grappling with the inherent economic hardships of her trade, Forrest is hopeful that she’ll be able to sustain her family’s uncommon and purposeful way of life.
