This project looks at fisheries and fishing-dependent communities of western Newfoundland in the context of broader regional and globalization processes, especially those affecting labour markets and markets for fish products. We hope to answer several inter-related questions: 1) How is the fishing industry functioning in the post-moratorium period and what are its future prospects? 2) How can we best understand the current situation of, and prospects for, communities that have been dependent on the fishery? 3) How have they adjusted to the collapse of the groundfish fisheries? 4) What new opportunities are being pursued and what challenges exist, particularly in terms of labour and markets? In the course of our research, we also found evidence of social and cultural change in these communities, which we will take into account as we address the core questions.
