Abstract or Summary
  • There has been great transition of fisheries in Atlantic Canada especially in Newfoundland these ten years, after the collapse of cod. The statistics of landing quantity, value, and number of fishers in Newfoundland & Labrador show that while landing quantity and number of fishers have decreased to the half, landing value has doubled. However, seeing only these rough figures, very important issue of how the real situation of industries and people's lives has been changed can easily missed. I will analyze influence of this drastic transition based on my research in Atlantic Canada, which includes interviews with fishers, processing companies and concerned individuals in St. Anthony, St. John's of Newfoundland and Ottawa. At the moment, there are 5 topics of real implications of the drastic transformation of these 10 years that needs to be examined. 1) Change in the species: The specie of caught fish has sifted from relatively cheaper groundfish to more expensive shellfish. 2) Differentiation in the classes of enterprises: Shellfish fishers dominate the upper class and fishers who catch several species with small boats belong to the lower class. 3) Growing processing companies' influence: The power of processing companies toward fishers has significantly increased. 4) Functional disorder of fishers' organizations: Organizations made before the collapse of cod have become unsuitable to the state. 5) Influence on communities: The change has had great influence on traditional communities which have been dependent on fisheries and processing industries.
