Joshua Stilts – Whatcom Fish Tales: A Historical Look at the County’s Seafood Industry

This is a local narrative on Whatcom County fishing history. Firsthand accounts and historic photos shed light on the importance of the industry to the community.

Joshua Stilts, a Bellingham native and son of a commercial fisherman, graduated from Western Washington University in 2006, earning degrees in theater and psychology. He returned to Western in 2008 to earn his degree in journalism. A year later, he and his wife moved to New Hampshire where he started working as a investigative reporter and photographer. Joshua spent nearly four years as an editor and lead reporter covering crime, education, business, arts, politics, and breaking news in the granite state, Vermont, and Massachusetts. He and his wife now live in Seattle with their daughter Emmeline.
