Josh Laughren, Executive Director of Ocean Canada, joins me on the podcast to discuss why there shouldn’t be a fishery for cod opened just yet.
In 1992, a moratorium on cod fishing was implemented that changed Newfoundland and Labrador forever. Gone were the days of teaching the next generation to fish for cod and here were the days of hard financial times and leaving their “Rock” for more opportunities across Canada in the oil and gas industry.
Now the cod have rebounded and people are wondering if we can fish them again. Two researchers at Memorial University disagree and so does Oceana Canada.
Josh is here to tell us why.
