Check out the new video " The 100 Mile Nautical Diet" encouraging you to enjoy the variety and value of seafood available off the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador. Restaurants and home cooks are showing renewed interest in what our waters have to offer and CURRA's new video is a great place to start learning more. CURRA's "The 100 Nautical Mile Seafood Diet is a short video, directed by Anne Troake, that promotes dialogue about ways to build a diet heavily reliant on food from the sea around Newfoundland and Labrador, including both traditional and contemporary uses."
I came to Newfoundland for the first time just over four years ago. I can still vividly recall taking the ferry across from Nova Scotia in the late winter, listening to the groaning sounds of the ice around the boat. Within two months of arriving I made my first trip to Bonne Bay, a remote fjord on the west coast of the island. I went to learn about the food system and fisheries in the region as part of a PhD program I was beginning at Memorial University that fall.
