Uncovering a Nova Scotia Fisheries Trail, by Sadie Beaton

Is this province embarrassed about celebrating local small-scale fisheries? The majority of seafood caught in towns and villages in Nova Scotia is exported directly from the wharf into convoluted global supply chains. This has meant Nova Scotia’s fishermen and fish plant workers are insulated from those who love and appreciate good seafood, and miss out on the much-deserved credit for their hard work. This disconnect further erodes pride in our fishing communities as well as respect for their important work stewarding our shared aquatic resources.
