Portrait of Newfoundland Shrimp Fishing

April 9, 2014

Chad Spence narrates the video. Sharing his outlook about the sometimes uncertain future of the industry, Chad also expresses his hope for a prosperous future and the intergenerational transfer of fish harvesting knowledge. As we ride along on the Cape Ashley, Chad shows us the gear and the work involved both on the boat and the preparation work on shore. The job certainly doesn’t start when the boat leaves the dock nor does it end when it arrives.
