There are now thousands of fishermen that have been left without livelihoods because of the collapsed stocks. Fish stocks in Newfoundland dried up in the early 1990s - now there is only cod left. Despite cod fishing quotas being cut from 400,000 tonnes in 1990 to 2,700 - numbers of cod fish have continued to fallN  Next Page NatTrust1 CmntyInfo Religion
