Atlantic Fisheries Fund - $641,518 for Newfoundland and Labrador fish harvesters

Backgrounder

January 2018

Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador are pleased to announce $641,518 for eight fish harvesters through the Atlantic Fisheries Fund.

The funding will improve the effectiveness, quality and sustainability of the fish and seafood sector by supplying the fish harvesters with automated longline hauler systems and insulated tubs. Automated longline systems will enable the harvesters to move from a labour intensive fishing operation to one that utilizes the latest technology, and which will improve the quality of fish landed and maximize the landed value.
