Hunting for Herring: An Evening of Celebration of Fishery Traditions on Grand Manan and Beyond

September 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5

“The potato of the Middle Ages,” “the silver darlings”, “the silver of the seas” – these are a few of the nicknames for herring, one of the most abundant fishes in the sea. Presenter Alison Hawthorne Deming will discuss the importance of herring to Grand Manan and throughout the history of the world. She will have aerial images of what remains of the early “stone weirs” and of recently operating weirds in celebration of this unique legal fishery. Admission by donation.
