The 25th Anniversary of the Cod Moratorium
First Annual Salt Fish Festival
1 Oct 2017, Sunday 1-5pm at Island Rooms
Join us for a special day that highlights our fishing heritage and the work of our ancestors. Members of our Girls Who Fish program will be on hand to teach rinding sticks, weaving rope, making salt fish and making fish paintings! Maybe we'll cut out a cod tongue or two!
Come Celebrate the Future of our Fishery!
Do you remember catching your first fish? I do! Fishing has and will always be central to the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador.
And it can be the most magical moment in the life of a child. Or the most fun you've ever had on vacation!
Newfoundland and Labrador IS fishing.
Our music and our art, our craft and our food celebrate our connection to the Sea that has sustained our families for generations.
It is imperative that we do something. NOW.
Not just preserve this heritage. Celebrate it.
Teach it to our children.
Before this traditional fishing knowledge is lost forever.....
You are a Vital Link!
One day every child in Newfoundland and Labrador will once again be taught the traditional fishing knowledge and skill of their ancestors; that this will instill in them a sense of pride, of place, and a longing to protect and conserve their natural home.
