The crab protest at the fish plant in La Scie has ended.
About 100 workers are upset with the Daley Brothers, for planning to ship crab from La Scie to another community for processing.
Workers started a blockade on Wednesday, preventing trucks from taking about 15,000 pounds of crab to a plant on the Avalon Peninsula.
The mayor's office in La Scie says an injunction was served, and the crab will be trucked to New Harbour, about 600 kilometres away.
Meanwhile, Fisheries Minister Derrick Dalley understands the workers are upset, but he said the company has followed the rules, and he can't get involved.
"From our perspective, certainly from mine personally, I truly understand the situation and the frustration with workers and the disappointment and concern," said Dalley.
"But at the same time, the mechanism within government is certainly not there to force a company to do more."
Dalley said under the rules, Daley Brothers must process 100 tonnes of crab over two years to keep its licence. The workers in La Scie are upset that the company is processing the bare minimum in the town and moving the rest of the work to another community.
