FFAW Says Drill Rig Takes Over Prime Crab Grounds

The FFAW is calling out the oil and gas industry alleging that the Hercules drill rig in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin, is in direct conflict with traditional prime fishing grounds.

Crab harvesters on the Avalon Peninsula are upset that the area is being used by ExxonMobil. FFAW has expressed opposition to the C-NLOPB.

ExxonMobil proceeded with the drill operations during what the union calls peak fishing time.
