Steveston Fish Market Frank Koustrup

Steveston Fish Market is a soundwalk through the outdoor fish market on the pier at Steveston, British Columbia. Steveston had once been the core of a community of Japanese-immigrant fishermen on the west coast of Canada. The internment of the immigrants and the theft of their businesses and homes during World War Two destroyed this community. The source is a binaural recording from the spring of 1989. “Nice, fresh salmon here, Sir … caught illegally this morning.” Wherever you are, someone has been before.
