Our Government is investing $12,500 to establish a sustainability strategy that will help to continue this annual event that celebrates a new era of goodwill around fisheries in New Brunswick. This gathering commemorates the significance of the fishing industry within New Brunswick’s history and the regional economy, while bringing the community together in celebration of local culture.
