Fish Plant Operations Update (Audio)

The char and scallop fishery landings is going well in Nain.

Keith Watts is the General Manager of Torngat Fish Producers Cooperative.

He says the fish plant operation and processing fish in the plant is doing well.

Watts says it is not the same at the Makkovik fish plant with the crab fishery this summer.

He says there was just one crab boat left last month and that caused a shortage of work for the plant employees.

One more crab boat arrived and left this morning to go fishing.

Watts says the snow crab fishery closes on Wednesday, August 12, and its hoped that there will be at least 2 landings when the boats arrive.
