Schooners at Labrador, pre-1921

Schooners at Labrador, pre-1921
Some Newfoundland fishers sailed to Labrador each summer to catch fish there during the early decades of the 20th century. Two groups prosecuted this branch of the saltfishery: stationers established a base on shore and fished each day from small boats, while floaters lived onboard their fishing vessels and travelled up and down the coast in search of cod.
