The Cod's Tale : What was it that allowed the Vikings to cross the cold Atlantic Ocean to America? And Christopher Columbus, John Cabot, and the Pilgrims after that? What fish became a staple of the medieval diet in Europe, helped spur the American Revolution, and helped the early New Englanders start making money of their own? It was cod, a fish that used to be so plentiful, explorers reported being able simply to dip a basket into the ocean to collect them. But now, only a few cod remain in the oceans, a reminder of the once-abundant fish that changed the world and of the devastating effect man has had on our earth.
