• Short Summary

    Sardine fishermen at work in Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick in Canada.

  • Description

    New Brunswick, Canada.

    Aerial shot of Blacks Harbour in New Brunswick. Dissolve to a fleet of sardine fishing boats. Various shots of the boats making their way into a weir where the sardines are trapped. Men fill their boat with water, then bring aboard huge nets full of thousands of flapping sardines.

    The fish are transferred from the water filled boats to fish tankers. A crane brings in the last of the fish. C/U of sardines in the hold of a boat. Seagulls fly overhead. View from the bow of a trawler as we head out of the weir. Scenic shot at dusk of the fishing boats on the water with seabirds flying overhead.
