Town of Fogo - Sealing

Aside from cod fishing, seal hunting was a second industry that was once important to Fogo's economy. Lewis Payne, a life long resident of Fogo, talks about his involvement in this industry, including the great distances he had to travel, and how he spent time on a sealing vessel called the 'Codroy.'
