In the 16th century is when France started fishing in Newfoundland too.
Year of 1992 ( a couple of hundred years later)
We have to do something about the Cod! Its decreasing in a great amount in 1968, the cod catch peaked at 800,000 tonnes. By 1975, the annual catch had fallen by more than 60 per cent. We will shut the Cod fishing industry down now!
Okay, ill do that
This is for the people, not us.
This is the best for our future
We are going to shut the industry down now. No one is allowed to fish anymore. To make myself clear NO MORE COD
The people of Newfoundland went to protest, to get there job back. The government heard about it but refused to let the Cod fishing industry go back to normal. To help displaced workers, the federal government introduced a variety of financial aid, retirement, and retraining programs to them.
We want our job back!
How will I survive without a job
I hate this! What's the purpose of life now?
I have been doing this for more then 40 years
When there was less Cod the shimp took over the place. Shrimp was rapidly increasing and people of Newfoundland started to catch shrimp.
After many years
In 2017 scientist have discovered that the Cod was coming back and they were eating the shrimp that took over there home.
