Fishery protests embarrassing for the province 
By Alex Kennedy CA Source: CBC News 3/23/2024

The head of the association that represents seafood producers in Newfoundland and Labrador says protests this week at Confederation Building send the wrong message to the marketplace.

Fish harvesters gathered in protest at Confederation Building from Wednesday to Friday this week,Loder said he believes many in the industry use the start of an upcoming season as a chance to get more of what they want by taking advantage of the price negotiation process.

"Last year it was a quota increase, and now there's a call for, you know, more competition, when there's more competition in our industry than there is in most other fishing industries." calling on the provincial government to change capacity limits for harvesters and allow them to sell their catch to out-of-province buyers. A deal accepting those demands was reached Friday afternoon.
 

Speaking with CBC News on Friday before the deal was announced, Jeff Loder of the Association of Seafood Producers said he didn't like how all parties got to this point.
