MARTIN, Cabot. No Fish and Our Lives : Some Survival Notes for Newfoundland. St. John's : Creative Publishers, 1992. First Printing. Pp (3), iv-xiii, (1), -209, (1). Map. 8vo, illustrated white trade paperback.
"No Fish and Our Lives consists of articles wriiten by Cabot Martin for the weekly Sunday Express between March, 1989 and May, 1991, grouped by theme and introduced by a number of new essays.
The book uses Newfoundland's cod crisis as atextbook example of how so-called 'modern' fisheries management techniques can work against the interests of traditional fishing societies. The strug gle of the Newfoundland inshore fishery to survive is also taken as a metaphor for the preservation of the Newfoundland society, a theme which is reinforced by a series of articles on Newfoundland's place within the Canadian Confederation.
No Fish and Our Lives should be of interest to all those interested in the issues of environmental protection, the Newfoundland fisheryand the role of traditional societies in today's world." - rear cover.
