“The cod was too good”: this is how the exciting new multimedia gallery “In the cracks” begins, available for viewing at the Marine Museum. Admire the content and aesthetics; this exhibition is not to be missed!
A THRILLING EXHIBITION: FABULOUS IMAGES AND STORIES!
Great Cod fishing is described with many a detail and emotion: the annual six-month absence of fishermen, the dangers of the journey, and the dramatic disappearance of nearly all the cod in the waters of Newfoundland, Labrador, Iceland and Greenland.

A CONTEMPORARY EXHIBITION: WHEN CURRENT AFFAIRS ENTER THE MUSEUM …
As a victim of overfishing, it is predicted that towards the end of the 21st century, the cod will virtually disappear from the Northwest Atlantic.
This story prompted the Marine Museum to bring to question: how can the marine resources continue to feed a growing population? Can we perhaps achieve sustainable and responsible fishing? Which species are favored by the consumer?
The latter part was developed in collaboration with BLOOM to ensure that all the impacts of fishing were taken into account. The result is amazing! All issues related to fishing and to the reduction of marine resources are raised accurately and with many testimonials from personalities within ocean conservation.
There is also an opportunity to discover numerous videos of Claire Nouvian, founder and director of BLOOM.
To discover or rediscover the famous period of the great cod fishing by European vessels, visit the Marine Museum in Paris, Place du Trocadero. You will not be disappointed!
