Summary or Abstract : The dissertation focuses on work, work-related ill health, health care and social organization of small scale, self-employed commercial fishermen of Somerset County, Maryland. The research was undertaken to (1) see if commercial fishing work caused an identifiable pattern of ill health, (2) document the history of exploitation of bay fisheries, (3) discover the changes in fishing technology and strategy, (4) examine the pattern of socialization and recruitment of fishermen, (5) classify the fishermen's work histories and strategies, and (6) ascertain the nature of the social system within which fishermen operate and see how it relates to the organization and performance of work. A broad cultural ecological model is employed as a conceptual framework. A combination of archival--libraries, court records, censuses--and field research--participant observation, life history recording, content analysis, survey interviews, simple observation, key informant interviewing, typology construction--methods were employed. Twenty-five commercial fishermen and eleven health care personnel from Somerset were formally interviewed. The conclusions are (1) natural environmental changes triggered modifications in social organization, demography and technology; (2) technological changes placed new pressures on the natural environment; (3) technological changes brought alterations in population and social organization; (4) certain health problems of fishermen flow directly from their work, others are related to heredity and lifestyle; (5) dramatic shifts occurred in the degree of exploitation of different fisheries related to species' availability and changing economic importance; (6) fishermen maintain networks of friends, neighbors and kinsmen in which their occupation is well established and from communities where there are few other work alternatives; (7) six work strategy patterns were discovered among the fishermen; and (8) family division of labor, local church and fire fighting organizations, networks of kinsmen, friends and neighbors, and occupational associations support the fishermen and their occupation.
