While sectors of Newfoundland and Labrador's fishery are as robust as they have been in recent years, there is still the looming threat of federal quota cuts and harvesting challenges facing other sectors. 

In an interview regarding what's ahead for the fishery in 2015, the new president of the Fish Food and Allied Workers Union, Keith Sullivan, spoke with the CBC's Jamie Baker about what he expects to run into during his first full year on the job.

Sullivan talks about a shaky inshore shrimp fishery, concerns in the crab sector — as well as how the low price of oil could actually help the province's seafood sector.
