The provincial government is taking a hard line with Ocean Choice International: The company wanted a permanent exemption to ship unprocessed redfish and yellowtail flounder out of the province. Fisheries minister Darin King held a news conference in St. John's this morning and he says the provincial government has no intention of granting such an exemption. Brian Callahan of the Fisheries Broadcast joins us for an update.
