Table of Losses

 

The fishing year was calculated, more often than not, from December of one year through November of the next year. The listings for the year 1830, therefore, would actually be from December 1829 through November 1830. Those listed in the main page are listed in the actual calendar year of the event, and not in the fishing year.
