Summary

Caption accompanying the photograph: "Salmon harvest -- Eden NSW 1958 - Maurice Egan, deckhand of the Sea Queen, unloading baskets of salmon into a fish trailer on Eden wharf, ready for transfer to the local cannery in Eden. At that time there was little demand for fresh salmon in Australia and more than 95% of the national catch was canned. There were two canneries in NSW, both owned by Green's Products, at Narooma and Eden. There was a small cannery in Melbourne, one in South Australia and one in Tasmania. In good seasons, the combined canneries could not handle the salmon catch and many fish had to be dumped".
