Book Description
"The fish is gone - every last one. It's like dragging across a desert out there, Mike boy. Like dragging across an empty desert."
- From Servants of the Fish

As the last of the northern cod disappeared from the fishing banks of eastern North America during the waning years of the twentieth century, more than just fish faced the threat of extinction. In communities all around the island of Newfoundland, thousands of fishermen and their families suddenly found themselves confronted by a similar threat. Servants of the Fish is the story of these people - at once the perpetrators and the victims of an event that some have termed the greatest ecological disaster of the modern era. Set in the context of a sailing voyage around the island of Newfoundland, it is a story of loss and dislocation, yet as the voyage evolves, it also becomes a story of heroism, simple kindness, and the distinctly human capacity to survive in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
