Cheers for that

Fishing off Newfoundland also used to be big business from here back in the 19th Century (and also 18th, I think)......all long long gone though.

A hard life.

Thanks!

Serves to dispel the theory about "a bad day fishing..." haha.

Bacalao has always been one of my favorite meals. Check epicurious for a variety of recipes. Makes a great fish stew.

Many thanks

Many thanks adv for posting this link.
I think that it's the first time that I see a movie about fishing schooners and dories. It looks very much like what my grandfather told me when I was a boy. He had been a fisherman in the 1920s, first on trawlers, then on schooners, sailing from Fécamp and Saint Malo to Newfoundland.

Thank you so much. I read the books of Patrick O'Brien, the Captain Aubrey series. As much for their history as their adventure. The English Naval ships would lose as much as a third of their crew each year or so, to harsh weather, poor food, and lack of vitamin C and falls.
Most couldn't swim and few vessels would turn back for a MOB.
Every time I see an old boat I touch my forlock to the men who sailed them, without engines, without much in the way of maps, and navigating by the stars alone.
And the respect too, to the Polynesians who did so much in the pacific in such little boats.
By gone times, fortunately, but only one or two generations away.
