  • John Cabot Sailing through the waters off the coast of NewFoundland
  • John was shocked over the fact of how many cod fish there was. All he needed was a bucket to collect them. 
  • France explorers were already cod fishing in the Grand Banks 
  • Many other countries, such as Spain and Portugal, joined in the fishing banks for the summer seasons and established summer bases to salt and process the fish.
  • 1497
  • For over 460 years of reliable fishing. Due to the small amounts of gear, boats, the fishing was sustainable.
  • 1950's During the 1950's the Grand Banks were still covered in 1,000s of cod fish.
  • During this time the Grand Bank was invaded by foreign boats, such as Germany, Spain, and Russia. They attacked with bigger boats, and huge nets to  catch cod fish.
  •  Later onto 1968, the use of dragnets was introduced and up to 800,000 tons of cod fish was caught. 
  • In 1975 the total cod fish rate dropped to 300,000 tons
  • Fast forward to 1988, the allowable catch limits for cod fish were now cut into half the amount. 
  • Later onto 1976, the Canadian government moved their bored 200 nautical miles to keep foreign boats off the Grand Banks 
  • Finally now 1992, the official Moratorium has been implemented into the world and cod fishing is now  dead.
