Late spring of each year, residents see caplin (or capelin, to non-Newfoundlanders) rolling onto the shores. Large, dense schools move close to the beaches for spawning (first males, then females), while avoiding the pods of whales migrating down the coast, but are quickly met with people and their nets.
During this season, certain beaches are known to turn silver with the fish as they roll themselves in the waves, right up onto the rocks. They are considered a reliable and important local food source that can be eaten fresh (fried or baked), frozen, or salted and dried for use throughout the year. Freshly pickled fish can be dried lying on a flake, hanging on pins in a board, or hung up like laundry (as seen above). Though less common among younger generations and tourists, the females’ bright orange roe (eggs) can be harvested easily, and is exceptionally delicious directly from the fish, or lightly salted and kept. Further, for some communities the caplin (along with kelp) are traditionally collected and used to enrich soil - as a fertilizer - for homestead gardens.
Similar to smelt, the traditional way to eat the fish is whole as the innards and head become delicious when cooked or dried, and the bones are soft and edible.
The photos in this set were taken in late June, 2014 at Middle Cove beach - a popular location to fill your boots.

"Nintendo is adding too many female characters to its new games!"
Actual footage of me directing the world’s saddest symphony, just for you:
Seriously, nobody says this. Stop making up shit so you can feel oppressed or some shit (or you just wanted a reason to post these gifs).
"Seriously, nobody says this."
"Stop making up shit so you can feel oppressed or some shit."
I’m not a woman, actually.
But, you seemed pressed. Here, let me direct the world’s saddest symphony for you as well:
You surely showed me by providing like 2 screenshots of idiots (I’m not counting the first one, it’s clearly a joke). The vast majority of people don’t fucking care about what they add, this post is just a typical example of pandering to the masses on tumblr for some easy notes.
Those were the most obvious and readily available examples. You can just as easily check the comments section on nearly every article on gaming websites dealing with Nintendo’s newest games, and the same on YouTube (granted, YouTube is made up of mostly morons). This kind of issue also extends toward gaming in general, not just Nintendo. Nintendo is just the one current developer adding the most female characters to their gaming rosters, so they were the obvious choice. But, if you prefer to live under a rock and pretend that this isn’t an issue, be my guest.
And just so we’re clear: I have nearly 4k followers, three posts right now running at 150k+ notes (none of them dealing with social issues), and several hitting over 30k+. I don’t need to pander for notes.
Take a seat.
People who seek to diminish inequality are just as bad as those who actively perpetuate it. It’s sad that this person feels the need to try and defend misogynists.
I always found this very interesting. I actually can’t speak for the other poster, because I don’t him or her enough to make claims. However, I’ve noticed that the majority has a tendency to tell the minorities of any group to “get over it,” and talk about how “it isn’t really that bad.” But, the moment the tables are switched for even a brief second, the majority can’t handle even a quarter of the same things the minorities deal with. There are, truly, gamers who complain that developers are “pandering to women” by adding more female characters, without realizing that female gamers have had to deal with this kind of “pandering” to the opposite sex for virtually decades now.
2/6 parts have arrived.
A high quality video for a high quality game.
I’ve been mulling over the idea of doing a Tales of Symphonia Chronicles LP in the vein of WoodenPotatoes’ FFX HD playthru. Something heavily focused on game mechanics/history/subquests/completion/weird trivia instead of a typical blind playthru style that’s more of a video guide w/commentary as opposed to an LP.
Eh, maybe one day
