Nothing tells a story like the eyewitnesses who were there. Old-timers
in New England's commercial cod fishery don't want us to forget how we
arrived where we are today. These "old salts" remember vastly different
conditions in the fishing industry just a few decades ago. In the
words of one of them, "it was the most fantastic fishery I ever saw."
Since then, overfishing—catching fish faster than they can
reproduce—continues to deplete 10 of our dinner-time favorites,
including Atlantic cod. For more information visit www.NewEnglandFishing.org
