FFAW and Province Reach Agreement on ‘Free Enterprise’

The Provincial Government has released a letter detailing the provincial changes taking place to increase provincial processing capacity and give harvesters more opportunities to sell their catch.

Harvesters have been unable to land their full potential for species like capelin, squid, shrimp, cod and more because of capacity issues or plants refusal to buy. As a result, fish harvesters spent several days last month demonstrating outside the Confederation Building in St. John’s and at other locations province wide calling for ‘free enterprise’.

The agreement responds to harvesters’ demands for free enterprise.
