The Collapse of the East Coast fishery in Canada By Seth Giddens In 1992 the devastating collapse of the fishing industry on the East Coast of Newfoundland Nova Scotia forced the Canadian government to take drastic measures and close the fishery But what couldve caused such a horrible downfall of one of Canadas biggest national resources The East Coast Fishery is made up of offshore fisheries and inshore fisheries An Offshore fishery is a type of fishery that is over 25 metres of the coast This type of fishery requires large boats An Inshore fishery is a type of fishery that is between the 25 metres of the coast This type of fishery requires small boats Nets and traps were extremely common to use to catch fish The East Coast of Canada was a great place to catch fish because it made up most of Canadas fishing industry The natural conditions of Canadas east coast favoured fish resources The fish were located mainly in the Grand Banks there was a continental shelf which benefited the fishing because it was deep meaning you could do offshore fishing The water varied in all depths There is enough sunlight coming down on the coast which penetrates to the bottom which stimulates plankton growth also fish like warmer water With the cold Labrador current and the warm gulf stream coming in it could churn the nutrients for the plankton to grow and attracts fish It had many types of fish but some of the main ones were Halibut Cod and Sole There are three main categories which fish fall into Groundfish Pelagic fish and Shellfish A Groundfish is a fish that swims close to the ocean floor Pelagic fish are fish that swims near the top of the water and Shellfish are crustaceans The main location for finding the great fish was the Grand Banks Fish were commonly around that area so it was perfect for fishers
