In honour of Canada150, HWW presents... The Atlantic Cod!

Celebrate Canada150 with HWW!

In honour of our country’s 150th Anniversary, Hinterland Who’s Who is releasing special videos about some of our most iconic wildlife and their impact on our country’s history and culture.
Here is the Atlantic Cod! This cold-water demersal fish is found at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off the Canadian coast. Fished by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years, cod would later become one of the most important parts of our fisheries with the arrival of Europeans in North America.

To discover the Atlantic Cod, the Pacific Salmon, the North Atlantic Right Whale, the Beaver and view some of our videos in Indigenous languages, visit our special Canada150 page!
In 2017, stay tuned to celebrate Canada's 150th!
