The ice conditions may delay the start of the fishing season in Makkovik.
Even though that may be the case, preparations have started on the fish plant.
Junior Andersen is the Manager.
He says right now they’re finishing installation of new equipment which they couldn’t put in last year.
The clean-up should start next week.
As for opening the plant for the crab season, Andersen says it may be a while yet before they do that due to ice conditions.
He even expects it could be as late as last year, which is around the 7th or the 8th of July.
John Ikkusek is the plant Manager in Nain.
He says right now they have a few workers doing repairs on the roof.
Ikkusek adds they will start with the clean-up on Monday.
They hope to open the plant around July 12.
