From very earlier occasions these reasons have been known to and visited from theadventurers of the nations of traditional western Europe--Breton, Northman, Basque, Spaniard,Frenchman and Portuguese and Englishman. For centuries these fishing locations have played a bigpart in feeding the nations bordering on the Western Sea, and the development of their resourceshas been a excellent factor in the investigation from the New World.000,000 pounds of fishery products, which are landed in the United States; and, according to O,according to statistics collected by the Bureau of Fisheries.[2] these banks annually produce over400.
