Examples of superb seamanship and bravery on the North Atlantic are endless, and grow with every trip to sea by every last fishing boat. So too are tales of great catches that come from great fishing skill, and fishing know-how.
The end goal is to once again ensure that our children grow up wanting to be fishermen/women, and that we, their parents, want it for them.
Those nominated must live in Newfoundland Labrador.
Those nominated must represent excellence within an aspect of Newfoundland and Labrador’s commercial fishery, between January-December 2018.
