Petty Harbour is one of the oldest fishing communities, having been visited by Basques, Portuguese and French in the early 1500's. Probably earlier - because no one gives away their prime fishing spots! Our families have maintained a sustainable hook & line fishery for generations. Join us to discover this history, changes to our harbour due to crab fishing, and the unique names and meanings for the buildings that line the water. Step inside a fishing shed & learn how saltfish is made, too!
