Bromley's Venture is a crab fishing boat that leaves from Conche Harbour on the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, Canada on a daily basis. Certain months of the year will not allow the crab fishing boats to leave the harbour as the pack ice that has moved in must melt so that the boats can depart. As soon as the pack ice has disappeared, engines are fired up on the fishing boats loaded with crab pots and out they venture to the vast waters around Conche, Newfoundland.There are many different sizes and types of crab pots but these particular ones are most often seen in Conche Harbour. The other boats along the dock with Bromley's Venture are all loaded with the same type of crab pots awaiting the first good day.Conche is a small fishing village on the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland with a total population of 250 and many of the locals are crab fisherman. A majority of the people that reside here have moved from the Grey Islands as they were forced out during the resettlement period and relocated to Conche, Newfoundland.Now the crab fisherman have a little more competition when journeying out with their crab pots but there is enough crabs in the Newfoundland waters for all the commercial fishermen in Conche, Newfoundland.Crab pots on the deck of 'Bromley's Venture' a crab fishing boat in Conche Harbour unable to leave the dock because of pack ice, Conche, French Shore, Northern Peninsula, Great Northern Peninsula, Viking Trail, Newfoundland, Canada.
