Department of Fisheries Closures

Merrill MacInnis

As we've been hearing in the news, CBC has learned that the Department of Fisheries plans to close its offices in Port Hood and Baddeck.

In an e-mail, DFO says fisheries officers at both locations will be moved to larger offices.

It does not says where they will be going or when the move will happen.

Merrill MacInnis is a municipal councillor in Victoria County.

He also fishes out of Little River which was served by fisheries officers from Baddeck.

Reporter Bobby Nock spoke to him about the closure and the steady decline in the number of fisheries officers based out of Baddeck.
