Fishing for Success at Island Rooms of Petty Harbour
Fishing For Success is a nonprofit social enterprise dedicated to living, sharing and celebrating the traditional fishing knowledge and culture that sustained generations of Newfoundlanders & Labradorians.
Island Rooms is a historic fishing property in Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador. It is the home of Fishing For Success, a not-for-profit that serves to teach youth and families about the natural and cultural heritage of Newfoundland & Labrador. Our focus is traditional fishing, small boat skills, hiking & snowshoeing in pursuit of berries or bird watching! And telling stories as you go…..
“One day every child in Newfoundland and Labrador will once again be taught the traditional fishing knowledge and skill of their ancestors; that this will instill in them a sense of pride, of place, and a longing to protect and conserve their natural home.” Join us in the adventure of reconnecting the child in all of us with the shared human heritage of fishing.
