When cod was king
The cod fishery was long the lifeblood of Newfoundland and Labrador. Here are some photos from The Telegram photo archives of a time when cod wore the crown. If you have cod fishery photos you'd like us to include in this slideshow, please send them to email@example.com. And by all means, share your memories of cod's golden age in the comments section below.

If they would stop wiping out the food chain, all species of fish would recover. If one destroyed all the farms and burned all the supermarkets, how long do do think people would survive?

Cod will be King again with Help, I have a colour publication report from the Dept of Fisheries, dated back some 30 years, called "ONE IN A MILLION" It tells of how one cod egg in a million survives to become an adult cod, This report or paper was printed over 30 years ago,when fish were plentiful, Now cod fish is on the in danger list , For cod to survive and come back to what it once was it will need Help, Instead of one cod egg in a million becoming an adult cod in the ocean, Cod needs to be hatched in a fish hatchery then when they are big enough to survive release them into protected coves or bays until they are big enough to release back in the ocean, it is only under a controlled condition that the cod can be hatched and released to restock the ocean, the survival rate of one in a million on its own without help will take for ever if at all .
