Message from the President

Dec 19, 2019

In October, the total landed value of the inshore fishery eclipsed $500,000,000 for 2019. This year will likely be the most valuable season ever for inshore harvesters in our province.  This is a result of constant pressure to ensure fair access to resources, focus on premium quality and negotiate strong collective agreements. This speaks to our collective work and achievement at the wharf, in the fleet committees, and in the negotiating committees.
