Our Heritage

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.....

Volunteer Now!

                                  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.

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!
