Wading Through Words

    July 2nd, 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of the cod moratorium. Since that announcement many years ago, countless papers, studies and reports have been done concerning the collapse of the cod fishery. The Centre for Newfoundland Studies houses this published material and answers fishery-related reference questions on a regular basis. In an effort to inform research by connecting people with key information, a guide was created shortly after the cod moratorium was put in place and it is still kept up-to-date all these years later. The guide Management of the Northern Cod Fishery: A Guide to Information Sources is meant to be a springboard for students, faculty and researchers who are pursuing studies dealing with the impact of the moratorium, the sustainability of the industry or more recently, the future recovery and comeback of the Atlantic cod stocks.
