Ryoshi – Nikkei Fishermen of the BC Coast
From the bustling docks of Steveston to remote inlets on the northern coast, Japanese Canadians have made unique contributions to fishing in B.C. both before and after World War II.

Here are the answers to those questions, set to the tune of the alphabet. Enjoy them in order, starting with A, or feel free to dive straight into the middle with M. It’s elementary!
