FFAW protesting, as DFO discusses inshore shrimp quotas
Inshore shrimp fisherman will be protesting in St. John's Thursday morning, as a DFO advisory committee meets to discuss quotas.
- Shrimp stock decline 'drastic' for coastal Labrador, says fisherman
- 'This is a crisis': FFAW calls for halt to northern shrimp harvesting
The Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union (FFAW) is planning a rally at the Bella Vista. They will then go on to the Holiday Inn, where the DFO meeting is taking place.
The inshore fleet wants any cuts in quotas to be focused on deepsea trawlers, rather than inshore harvesters.
CBC will carry live coverage of the rally, starting at 10 a.m. NT.
