Caplin Cove is a small community on the north shore of Conception Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It is surrounded on the north by Low Point near the end of the Bay de Verde Peninsula, and on the south by Lower Island Cove. Caplin Cove was probably named for the large body of capelin in its waters.

History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Caplin Cove used to be a small fishing community, which had its own integrated elementary school, accommodating the community's Anglican, United, and Salvation Army students. The growth of service centres combined with the harsh environment of Conception Bay contributed to the decline in population of Caplin Cove. The growth of the fresh frozen fish industry, nearby seafood processing plants, improved roads, and new educational facilities contributed to Caplin Cove’s survival.
