FRANKLIN: What's Old Is New Again

Captain Franklin Brisk chases his snow crab quota, while waiting in anticipation to take over the boat he learned to fish on as a deckhand.

Franklin Brisk is back on the water.  The hours are long and the work is grueling, with little sleep -- all the while chasing the Listuguj fisheries’ most lucrative species: snow crab. But this time, he’s a captain, and that means juggling new responsibilities especially since, as the newest captain, he got the oldest boat. It will do for now, despite its challenges, but Franklin and his crew are looking forward to dry docking it and getting on to their new vessel. It is a busy life for him, shuttling between the docks and his home community of Listuguj, where he meets the demands of family life. Thankfully, his mom Pam Isaac is around to lend a hand — when she’s not on the water herself.   Pam’s latest endeavour, with her science team colleague Carole-Anne Gillis and local Elder Earl Labillois, is looking for the elusive lumpfish that may be returning to the shores of the Baie des Chaleurs after a long absence.
