Lines in the Water
n 2004 the NZMFA released a book on a history of mussel farming in New Zealand. This book focuses on the personalities and vessels involved in the first quarter century of the industry's growth.

About the Book:

This book was commissioned by the MFA as a celebration of the mussel industry and a tribute to its pioneers. It was preceded by an oral history project, also by Carol Dawber, and tapes form that project are lodged at the Oral History Centre at the Alexander Turnball Library in Wellington.

Previous publications include The Jacksons of Te Awaiti, a history of Tory Channel whaler Jimmy Jackson and his descendents, and Inheriting the Dream, about co-operative dairy companies in the Tasman region. A former Nelson Mail journalist, Carol has also worked as a scriptwriter for Shortland Street and has completed a Spectrum documentary programme for National Radio.
