Description:March 1985. After a six-month strike, the trawlers are once again heading out from Bonavista, bound for fishing grounds on the Grand Banks, off the coast of Labrador. They will fish for 10 days, then return to land for 48 hours. The camera follows the fishing expedition of the ZANDBERG, as it returns to shore and unloads its catch, which is immediately frozen before being shipped to the Danvers plant, near Boston, where it will be processed...in other words, prepared in whatever manner is popular at the time.
