Fogo Island’s ‘people of the fish’ hand-catch cod. Traditional practices meet forward-thinking sustainable solutions

On a remote, ruggedly beautiful part of Newfoundland, local fishers harvest natural resources in creative ways, engaging in a modern experiment – employing intricate methods to slowly catch one fish at a time. These fishers are leading a revolution in sustainability, taking their premium product directly to the commercial market for the first time.
