They left towards the end of winter. Each year more than 500 boats, bound for Newfoundland or Iceland, sailed out from French ports.
Fishing on the Great Banks. The introduction of the doris. Work patterns aboard ship. "Cod before everything" and certainly before the fishermen. The crews. The ship's boys. An Icelandic campaign: angling from schooners. Long working days on dangerous seas. The respite in the Icelandic fjords.
En route for the drying grounds at the end of the campaign. The home coming and those who never returned...
The hard life of the cod fishermen made heroic through popular songs, books, films. Conservatism and politics.
The Fist World War marks the end of France's cod fishing supremacy. The appearance on the scene of new countries and new methods of fishing.
