Description

After a 20-year moratorium the cod stocks are returning. Set in the coldest waters surrounding Newfoundland’s rugged Fogo Island, this film follows  traditional fishers who catch cod live by hand, by hook and line, one at a time, and take their premium product directly to the commercial market for the first time.
