Torngat Fishery Update

Nain residents were surprised to see activity taking place at the community’s fish plant recently.

Torngat Fish Producers Cooperative (TFPC) had opened the plant to smoke some char.

Keith Watts is the General Manager for the cooperative.

He says they recently ran out of smoked char in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

They flew 3,000 pounds of char to Nain for smoking.

Watts says all of the char has been smoked.

TFPC is now in the process of shipping the product back to Goose Bay.

Watts says they held their regular pre-Christmas board meeting last week.

Agenda items included this summer’s fishery, plans for next summer and further discussions on forming a single fishing entity.

The board and staff were treated to a supper to celebrate TFPC’s 30th Anniversary.

The cooperative celebrated thirty years of operation on December 4.

Watts adds that he would like to send Christmas greetings and best wishes for a new year to residents of Nunatsiavut and Upper Lake Melville from TFPC’s board and staff.
