Torngat Fisheries Board Meeting

The operation of the Torngat Fish Producers Cooperative fish plants topped the agenda during the meeting of their board.

The Board met last week in Happy Valley- Goose Bay.

Keith Watts is the General Manager.

He says the board had to decide what they would do in the plants at Makkovik and Nain.

They decided both plants will operate similar to last year.

Nain will be landing char for about a month.

But Watts hope to bring in about 100,000 lbs of turbot for processing.

That would be up from the 30,000 lbs last year.

The Makkovik plant will process crab and turbot this summer.

The crab season opens on June 14th.

Watts also said they’re looking into getting something started with the fishery in Postville and Rigolet.
