Peter R. Sinclair (Editor)
This challenging collection of essays examines the crisis in the Newfoundland fishery, the current structure and its future. What can we learn from a comparison of the Newfoundland fisheries with other North Atlantic fisheries? How have fishing communities and organisations adapted to the changing social and political pressures? What are the historical roots of contemporary problems? To what extent does the future of Newfoundland depend on the survival of the fisheries?
