In the early Nineties, the northern cod populations off the coast of Newfoundland had turn into so depleted that the government put a moratorium on advertisement fishing. The effect was once devastating, either for Newfoundland's financial system and for neighborhood fishing groups. this present day, even if this typical source – exploited commercially for over 500 years – seems to be returning in lowered numbers, many fisheries scientists and fishers query even if the cod will ever go back to its former abundance.

In A Fishery for contemporary Times, Miriam Wright argues that the new issues within the fishery may be extra absolutely understood through reading the increase of the commercial fishery within the mid-twentieth century. The advent of recent harvesting applied sciences and the emergence of 'quick freezing', within the past due Thirties, ultimately supplanted loved ones construction by way of Newfoundland's fishing households. whereas the hot applied sciences elevated the volume of fish stuck within the northwest Atlantic, Wright argues that the nation performed a serious function in fostering and financing the commercial frozen fish zone. Many bureaucrats and politicians, together with Newfoundland's most well known, Joseph Smallwood, believed that making the Newfoundland fishery 'modern', with centralization, expertise, and services, might rework rural society, fixing deep-seated monetary and social problems.

A Fishery for contemporary Times examines the ways that the nation, ideologies of improvement, and political, fiscal, and social elements, besides political actors and fishing corporation proprietors, contributed to the growth of the commercial fishery from the Nineteen Thirties in the course of the Sixties. whereas the promised prosperity by no means absolutely materialized, the ongoing reliance on methods favouring high-tech, substantial capital strategies positioned expanding strain on cod populations within the years that undefined. As Wright concludes, 'We can not have enough money to view the fisheries assets as "property" of the nation and undefined, to do with it as they decide on. That course had led simply to devastation of the source, monetary instability, and nice social upheaval.'
