  • Description
  • This film looks at how the Canadian Council of Professional Fish Harvesters (CCPFH) and similar organizations worked to professionalize fisheries in Canada during the early 1990s for the sake of the 77,000 independent fish harvesters. Professionalization involves bestowing professional status on those who have a long-term attachment to fishing, and also setting qualifying standards for new entrants. This film is a collaborative venture between CCPFH and Human Resource Development, Canada.
