Saving the Ocean

Cod Comeback? - Preview

0:30

In the rich fishing grounds of New England and Canada, it seemed as if cod would never run out — until they did. Fishing communities from Newfoundland to Massachusetts fell apart. Widespread closures in the 1990s aimed to let the cod recover, but it’s been a long wait. Carl Safina goes fishing to find some of the first signs that the famous codfish just might, indeed, be coming back.
