Labelled "Top Secret, " it was the culmination of almost a year of planning and preparatory work. It's one of the war's best kept secrets-and certainly one of the most interesting. The Bank of Canada was about to become a key, if secret, player in the Second World War, and truthfully, the story doesn't involve a single fish at all. A lot of it-thousands of pounds that needed to move across an ocean to protect the future of Europe.
More than 600 people were involved. Operation Fish was the largest movement of physical wealth in history. It was also perhaps the single greatest economic gamble of all time, and a tremendous success-a testament to the resourcefulness and co-operation of the allied powers and their central banks during the war.
