I'm writing to you because I am against the capelin fishery, because of the destruction going on out there on the water.
The seiners are waiting for another shot or chance to catch the only food that the codfish bite, and that's capelin. If these seiners aren't stopped immediately then the capelin will be a thing of the past and the codfish will be a thing of the past because their food will be gone or disappeared.
You know, the whole world is laughing at the Newfoundlanders, because we're waiting for the codfish to come back and we know the fishermen are out there with their seiners and what they're doing is they're hunting the food right out of the codfishes' mouths.
I feel that the fishery for capelin should be closed forever.
We can always do as we did before, get our winter's supply on the sandy beaches at home. But there's a dozen sandy beaches where there is no capelin rolling in because the seiners has caught the capelin and that's why the codfish doesn't stay in a bay because there's no food.
The capelin fishery must be stopped immediately.
