SEA-NL elects new president

SEA-NL has elected a new president.

Pamela Patten has been elected as president and according to SEA-NL, she is believed to be the first woman to lead a fisheries organization in the province’s history.

Patten has been an enterprise owner for 11 years, and a fisherperson for 22. She was elected President during SEA-NL’s AGM this past Saturday, Feb. 25th in Gander, and replaces Bay Bulls enterprise owner Jason Sullivan.

“As a woman I will obviously bring a slightly different perspective to the table, but my role will be to unite owner-operators around the province regardless of fleet or gender,” says Patten, who runs the Bradley Venture, a 39’11 longliner that primarily fishes snow crab and lobster.
