Pouch Cove was once a vibrant fishing town but, due to government restrictions on allowable cod quotas, is no longer involved in the fishing industry on a large scale. https://www.heritage.nf.ca/articles/economy/moratorium.php
Annually, the government makes provisions for the recreational cod fishery to allow an opportunity for the residents of Newfoundland and Labrador to fish for a specified allotment of cod fish https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/food-fishery-dfo-recreational-groundfish-1.4703033
Many citizens in the area are direct descendants of fishermen of days gone by. The flair of the rural, old-fashioned, community and engaging character of many of its residents remains. You often see the "old timers" gathering to "spin a yarn" (aka, chat) in front of an ocean observation point next to the town hall or near the fishing stage.
Place yourself in this picture: No industrial noise ... The sound of the roaring ocean pounding the coastline as it impacts with land ... The sights of white ocean spray being jetted into the air, small water droplets ballooning out before dropping back into the sea ... The feeling of the feel fresh, country, air on your skin ... The sight of icebergs in the cove, during iceberg season ... The sound of birds chirping in the trees and the sight of birds flittering from tree to tree in the yard ... The sight of the yellow, pink, and red haloed summer sun casting a warm glow on the land, invigorating the vibrant flowering plants ... The smell of the BBQ sizzling in the background as you swing on the patio swing while sipping your favorite beverage ... The sight of sea birds gliding the coastline, dipping into the ocean, and gathering on cliff faces along the shoreline ... During season, hoping to capture a glimpse of whales surfacing, breaching, and spouting jets of water into the air https://www.victoriawhalewatching.com/2016/09/07/whale-surfacing-behaviors/
