Journal DetailsThe first publication entitled Decks Awash was a 1964-65 newsletter summarizing the content of the Memorial University Extension Service television program of the same name (1964-77). Between 1968-93 a new Decks Awash journal was published independent of the show, covering topics of interest to both fishermen and rural Newfoundlanders, including fisheries equipment and policy, agricultural development and community profiles.
