Holyrood, 1996

Holyrood, 1996

Today I am sharing photos taken on Holyrood Beach when the capelin were rolling in during the summer of 1998.  For those of you who don't live here, capelin are tiny fish that spawn on beaches around Newfoundland in early summer.  In recent years, probably because of overfishing and climate change, these fish spawn later in the year.  I have seen them rolling on the beach in late August.

As you can see, there are people with nets scooping up the fish just a few feet from the beach.  Usually, the person with the net fills other peoples' buckets.  Most people eat the fish, but others put them on their vegetable gardens.

Comments are welcome!

Feel free to share with family and friends.
