In the heyday of the cod fishery in Newfoundland and Labrador, when inshore boats dotted the ocean and the provincial government handed out processing licences like candy to fish plants that were springing up in many coastal communities, no one could fathom a day when there'd be no company wanting to buy cod from inshore fishermen. In 2013, fishermen on the province's south coast could not catch their full quota of cod because most plants in the province were not buying cod - or not buying cod at times the fishermen went out to catch it - and any plants that did buy cod often offered a low price.
