Abstract or Summary
  • The fishing communities in the St. Anthony area of Newfoundland, Canada, were forced to adjust to the collapse of cod catches in Atlantic Canada in the early 1990’s. It was not only the fishing industry that was affected. The entire community had to live through the changes in resources. To evaluate the changes that occurred after collapse of cod and to understand today’s fishery in the area, I conducted research in 2002 and 2005. Today, fishers and fishery have survived the collapse of cod fishing and have arrived at the new and relatively stable stage. While the number of fishers has been increasing since 1998, those of enterprises and fishing vessels are decreasing. Fishery incomes have risen because cod fishery has been replaced by fishing of valuable snow crab. Communities should be maintained such that fishers can continue to engage in fishery.
