Cod Comeback? [electronic resource]

In the rich fishing grounds of New England and Canada, it seemed as if cod would never run out-until they did. Fishing communities from Newfoundland to Massachusetts fell apart. Widespread closures in the 1990s aimed to let the cod recover, but it's been a long wait. In some areas they seem to be gone for good; in others a recovery may have started only recently; and in still others they're not doing well. From historic fishing schooner logbooks in the National Archives, to the eerily empty inshore waters of New England, Carl Safina goes fishing to find some of the first signs that the famous codfish might, indeed be coming back.
