Old and new: an old wharf sits between the Pennecon Energy Marine Base and a number of tour boat operators in Bay Bulls harbour. There, the oil, tourism and fishing industries co-exist two decades after the cod collapse. — Photo by Steve Bartlett/The Telegram
Part II of The Telegram’s cod moratorium focuses on Bay Bulls, a community with a dubious tie to the closure of the fishery.
It’s where John Crosbie made the infamous quip, “I didn’t take the god damn fish out the water,” to a throng of concerned harvesters and plant workers.
Our story in today’s print and e-edition focuses on how Bay Bulls has fared 20 years later.
As part of this series, we’d like to hear your thoughts about how you’re community has done since the cod closure. Leave a comment below.
As well, we’d love it if you shared pictures of your community, old or new. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tomorrow, the series moves down the Irish Loop to the Trespassey area.
