Welcome to Pouch Cove Cod Liver Oil Memories. You are about to experience an audio-visual trip which will stimulate your imagination concerning the cod liver oil factories and production which took place in Pouch Cove, Biscayan Cove and Shoe Cove from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. As members of the communities recall their memories you will learn about the location of the factories, the process of extracting the oil from the cod livers, the collection and use of the oil, as well as the importance of this supplementary income to local fishermen and their families. You will also hear about various incidents which our storytellers experienced as they reflect on this historical era in our community.Now that you have downloaded the Cod Live Oil Memories App you can experience five different sites where cod liver oil was collected and processed. The location button will direct you to these sites and once there the GPS locator will trigger the stories and images. If you walk out of a story, it will fade away, but dont worry just retrace your steps and it will pick up where you left off. If you are less adventurous or are unable to visit the sites you can still experience the stories by choosing the armchair mode.This project received funding through the Fisheries Intangible Cultural Heritage Grant, an initiative of the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.Produced by Pouch Cove Heritage Committee
