No Name Cove and its unique lighthouse on the western coast of Newfoundland at dawn. All around Newfoundland are traces of its fishing heritage. Even today, the fishing industry plays a large role in the economy of Newfoundland and Canada as a whole.
The northerly waters around Newfoundland helped the Inuit population survive and thrive in this area. The fishing heritage of the region was established by the Inuits and adopted by the European settlers who eventually colonized the area for fur trading.
The fishing heritage has been the longest-lasting legacy of the Newfoundland area. Even today, the area produces much lobster and other seafood exports for the United States.
