Crab Negotiations Update

April 27, 2020

After weeks of the Association of Seafood Producers (ASP) stalling and disrespecting fish harvesters, FFAW attempted to continue with price negotiations today on snow crab. FFAW submitted a price offer today of $4.25/pound plus a market return formula in addition to the minimum price. Appallingly, ASP offered $0.01 cent per pound to snow crab harvesters in Newfoundland and Labrador. FFAW is moving to the Price Setting Panel this week where ASP will be forced to provide a reasonable offer as the Panel will have to choose between either FFAW’s or ASP’s final offers.
