Land and Sea

For more than 30 years, Land and Sea has brought us stories from people who live off the land and the sea. This series covers issues that affect people in rural communities, which ultimately affect those in cities as well. Discover stories from those living close to nature who promote and protect their culture and traditional ways of doing things. There are stories of success and sometime failures that portray the unique way Atlantic Canadians deal with the challenges and pleasures of living on the east coast.
