Fish harvesters meet with World Energy GH2

The FFAW says fish harvesters on the Port au Port Peninsula were granted an in-person meeting with World Energy GH2 on Friday.

Fifteen fish harvesters and FFAW-Unifor staff joined World Energy in Stephenville. The FFAw states that the environmental impact statement requirements fail to take into consideration commercial fishing impacts.

FFAW-Unifor is therefore calling on the provincial government to ensure all onshore, nearshore, and offshore wind energy developments include impact assessments for commercial fishing.

The impact statement takes into account studies on birds, bats, other wildlife, plant life, as well as Indigenous fisheries.
