>> jeremy b: this is the shed, this is what every newfoundlander, you know, this is there hangout spot is the shed. oddly enough, it's like an escape. >> anthony: how do i say newfoundland? i've got to get this right. >> jeremy c: understand, newfoundland. >> anthony: i know, everyone says that to me, but that's not helping me. i've gotten my balls busted so bad. >> jeremy b: think of it like new-fun-land. new-fun-land. >> anthony: new-fun-land. new-fun-land. >> jeremy c: there you go. >> anthony: not new-found-land. >> jeremy b: not new-found-land. new-fun-land. yup. >> anthony: newfoundland, a rocky island off the east coast of canada, extending into the north atlantic. they may not be from here, but chefs, restaurateurs, noted raconteurs -- fred morin and dave mcmillian were excited to explore this wild and beautiful rock with me. it's a part of canada all its own, with its own distinctive history and culture. so as entertaining as my quebecois friends might be, i
thought it wise to recruit some natives -- chef jeremy charles and his partner, jeremy bonia. it's an all-dude affair. >> anthony: what's on the menu today? >> jeremy c: cod fish. >> anthony: cod fish? >> jeremy c: yeah, or just fish. >> anthony: just fish? >> jeremy c: about fish we say, you know, fish is cod in newfoundland, you know? when you talk about fish, people just assume it's cod fish. >> jeremy c: living off the ocean is insane. it's unbelievable when you get out here and you see, and you're in the elements, it makes you really respect people who work on the water, you know what i mean? like -- >> dave: guys used to row out here. >> jeremy c: yeah, you know, they just realized what it takes to get it to the restaurant, it's not easy, right? so -- >> dave: respect the fish and chips a little more, right? >> jeremy c: respect the fish
and chips, man. >> anthony: for over 500 years, the icy waters off newfoundland's coast overflowed with a seemingly endless bounty of cod. fishermen from all over, as far away as england, portugal, and spain came here to pull them from the sea. they built entire food cultures around the delicate, white-fleshed fish, and for most of its history, cod defined the culture here. cod was king. >> news anchor: ottawa is about to announce a moratorium on northern cod. small independents, big company trawlers all will have to pull their nets and dock their boats. >> anthony: but in 1992, after years of over-fishing, the canadian government shut the industry down. >> man on news: six generations down the line, passed down, and he's done nothing but s-h-i-t to us. >> anthony: the moratorium wiped
out the main source of income for the province, and ended a way of life. and though it's been loosened some, the moratorium is still in effect today. >> dave: what was the spirit of people in '92? >> jeremy c: destroyed. >> jeremy b: think about it, think about your number one industry -- >> dave: no one could fish? nothing? zero? >> jeremy c: it went from going out to jig a fish with your family or whenever you wanted to absolutely nothing. so it just like tore the heart and soul out of people. >> fred: what did people change cod for? tilapia? >> dave: can i ask this though, was it warranted? the closing down of the fishery? >> jeremy b: yeah, it was. i think it was. i mean, a lot of the in-shore, small guys were talking about it for years, talking about, "we can't keep this up." like, factory trawlers, and the fishery was just getting bigger and bigger. and it's like, how do you put a factory trawler that's just dragging the seas from multiple countries, including our own, for years and years and not have an effect. >> jeremy c: it was very dark times. >> anthony: but better now? getting better? >> jeremy b: from what we've
seen, and talking to fishermen in the bays and stuff, cod is coming back. >> jeremy c: cod is king still. cod is still king. >> captain: what's your water, dave? >> dave: 140. >> captain: okay, that's perfect. let's give her a shot. let's start with two lines, and then see how much of a mess we've got with tide. >> dave: i've got a nibble. >> captain: there you go, lift that. oh, there you go, fred. >> anthony: nice one. >> fred: whoa. next one is a moose. >> anthony: yeah, all right. there you go. that's a nice-sized one. >> jeremy c: one down, 14 to go.

yourself. >> anthony: thank you, sir. >> jeremy c: there you go. >> anthony: whoa, that's a nice-sized one. >> dave: that's why these things went extinct. they bite like crazy. >> anthony: wow, i think that's the most successful fishing scene i've had in many, many years. >> dale: we're surrounded by water, and we're not really a seafood-eating place. we live in this fish culture, it's been fishing here for hundreds of years, and the fish was not always accessible to people here. it was something that was always for export. >> anthony: right. >> dale: and so the fishery is changing a little bit. i think as well, it was always
just a single species fishery, and now that's diversifying. >> anthony: by necessity. >> dale: yes, absolutely. and that's really important, because we live on this where food security is an issue. >> anthony: dale jarvis works for the intangible cultural heritage development office for the province of newfoundland and labrador, helping communities safeguard what they can of traditional culture. >> anthony: what's changed as far as the way that -- i'm going to try and pronounce it correctly -- newfoundlanders. would that be correct? >> dale: newfoundlanders. >> anthony: newfoundlanders see themselves? i mean, something seems to be happening here as far as people here beginning to value their own products, their own traditional food ways. that's a big change, and it's something that jeremy charles, for instance, has been doing very, very, very successfully. how important is that? >> dale: i think one thing that has kept people here, in the wake of the fisheries collapse, like the fish moratorium in 1992, so many people left. and what really has kept people here is that sense of tradition.
i think sometimes there's this idea that tradition is static, and that isn't necessarily true. tradition is always kind of changing in response to the environment. and people choose the things that they're passionate about, and they find a way to make that work. and i think newfoundlanders have always had that tradition of making do and making things work in the situation where they are. >> anthony: here at the family-owned and operated charles' landing, the specialty is fish and chips. >> anthony: oh, really good, thank you. homemade fries, always a good thing. how canadian is newfoundland? >> dale: you know we have this kind of complex relationship here in newfoundland with the rest of canada. you know, we were a very old british colony here, but we've only really been part of canada since 1949. and i think for a long time on the mainland of canada there was kind of this stereotype of
newfoundlanders as being, you know, poor and uneducated, kind of that "goofie newfie" stereotype kind of stuff that happened. and over the past 10, 20 years, there has been a real shift in how the rest of canada perceives newfoundland, but i think also as how newfoundlanders perceive themselves. and people i think are starting to say, "hey, we don't have to just import food from the united states or canada." you know the stuff that we have here, the ingredients that we have here are actually pretty special. >> anthony: you could actually shoot a bird and serve it in a restaurant. you do that in montreal and you get arrested. you could shoot rabbits and serve them in restaurants. >> dale: yeah, we have the benefit of that here, yeah. >> anthony: this is an enormous and unique advantage. >> anthony: back at the shed, a classic fish and brews. a hearty sailor's stew of cod and hardtack. >> jeremy c: sweet. >> anthony: look at that. whoa, what's this? >> group: scrunchions. >> anthony: scrunchions?

you're welcome. ♪ >> bar dave: in 1497, there was a man by the name of john cabot. john cabot sailed the atlantic on his boat the matthew from bristol, england to bonavista bay. and when he arrived he saw lots of activity in our water. now he didn't know what was going on, but he dropped his bucket down to fill it up with water, and when it came up to the top of the boat, it was filled right to the rim with cod fish. now word got out fast how plentiful the fish were in our waters that they traveled from all over to settle here, and to catch the fish, salt the fish, trade the fish all around the world as a means of survival. in one place in particular that we traded with was with jamaica. and in jamaica, they make rum, and we love rum. we love it so much that we would actually get down on that wharf and we'd kiss the fish goodbye knowing that it was coming back to us in the way of rum. so in keeping with that time,
and honor tradition, i do have a little buddy for you to meet. >> dave: it's a gremlin. >> bar dave: this is a real newfoundland cod fish. given the chance, this fish could've grown up to the height of 6 feet tall, weighing as much as 130 pounds. this fish won't grow any more than this because it's dead.
