The major commercial fishery in British Columbia (B.C.) began with the first canneries along the coast in the late 1800s. The work was hard and the money was good. It was also dangerous work and over the years many fishermen have been fatally injured. This video, produced with Worksafe BC, tells the health and safety story of this important industry and shares what is being done to make it safer for the women and men who fish today.
