What is Fish Tales?


From coast to coast to coast, and the waterways in between, Fish Tales is a podcast series bringing you real stories from the diverse fishers of Canada. Whether it’s cod, salmon, crab, or trout, fishing is more than just a way of life to diverse communities in Canada — it’s a culture, and most importantly a core sense of identity to coastal, lake, and river peoples.


We chat with Indigenous fishers exercising their traditional fishing rights, commercial fishers advocating for their livelihoods, and the folks for whom fishing is their recreational space. Together these stories share a glimpse into the vibrant world of fishing in what we now call Canada.
