On the Package

Fishing for a living depends on a steady regeneration of the fishing stocks -- but recently fisheries in the North Atlantic have seen the once-plentiful codfish dwindle away to almost nothing. This edition of Soundprint looks at the effect of the loss of their livelihood in a small Canadian fishing community where "being on the package" means receiving a government unemployment check.
