In Adapting to a Changing Situation John Ennis presents the history of Placentia Bay and his own family's growth and development in the Bay. The story contains a wealth of information on the fishery, fishing methods, gear and technology and the prosperous business which flourished in the Bay. As well, there are stories and experiences from his childhood and many years at sea - iceboating, the tidal wave of 1929, shipwrecks and narrow escapes...

About the Author
John Lou Ennis was born in Merasheen, Placentia Bay on July 22, 1913. He left school at the age of 13 and fished with his father until the turmoil of World War II forced him to seek employment in the U.S. Naval Base in Argentia in 1941. Beginning as a labourer in the lumberyard, he rose to yard foreman and later to Utilities Foreman at the North Side Power Plant on the Base. He retired from the Base in 1973 and returned to his beloved fishery.

In Adapting to a Changing Situation, John Ennis presents the history of Placentia Bay and his own family's growth and development in the Bay. The story contains a wealth of information on the fishery, fishing methods, gear and technology and the prosperous businesses that flourished in the Bay. As well, there are stories and experiences from his childhood and many years at sea--iceboating, the tidal wave of 1929, shipwrecks and narrow escapes...

Throughout, look for Mr. Ennis' commentary on Newfoundland issues. He has especially strong opinions on resettlement, the management of the fishery, the moratorium and even on Confederation which he feels, while bringing many benefits to Newfoundland, has limited what we could have been as an independent country.
