For five hundred years, the Newfoundland cod fishery was the greatest fishery in the world. Now this seemingly inexhaustible resource is on the brink of extinction. In 1992, the federal government announced a moratorium on cod stocks, catapulting more than 30,000 people out of work in the largest "layoff" in Canadian history. They Let Down Baskets unites the talent of three award winning Newfoundland artists to document the personal impact and devastation brought about by by the closure of the fishery. By combining sound, images and words this book makes a unique contribution to understanding an overwhelming social and economic dilemma. They Let Down Baskets records the hope and depair, the rage and frustration, of a once productive people caught up in something much bigger than themselves.
